Hi,

About an hour ago I did `hg clone http://bitbucket.org/justin/riak/`
to update my Riak installation.

I started following this screencast:
http://blog.basho.com/2009/12/17/basho-screencast---dave-smith-introduces-riak-in-an-embedded-node/

`make rel` went ok, it output a Riak distribution. When I do `bin/riak
start` the prompt returns (no error message) but the server is not
reachable:

ftreacy @ ~/work/sandbox/riak/rel/riak
 =>  bin/riak ping
Node 'riak at mbp-2.local' not responding to pings.

=ERROR REPORT==== 20-Dec-2009::12:38:57 ===

What could be going wrong? There is no erl_crash.dump file whatsoever.

Thanks,

Francisco
