I don't have a FC 17 VM handy, so I can't test it, but have you tried the FC 15 package from   The only problem I could see you having is a wrong dependency on openssl, but you should be able to install the matching one along side the one that installs with FC 17.

The proper erlang is bundled in the Riak packages, so you won't need Erlang installed otherwise.  Let me know either way if it works.

It didn't work to changing the version regex everywhere I could find, though it's possible I missed some. Then, I built R14B03, and I get an "Uncaught error in rebar_core" error during make rel:
