Hi Trevor,

We've teh latest Riak up and running on Fedora 17 with R15B01.

Follow these are the steps:

$ wget
$ tar xzvf riak-1.1.2.tar.gz
$ cd riak-1.1.2
$ ./rebar get-deps

Remove this line "{require_otp_vsn, "R14B0[234]|R15"}." from all these files:
$ find . -name "rebar.config" | xargs grep "require_otp_vsn"

./deps/cluster_info/rebar.config:{require_otp_vsn, "R13B04|R14"}.
./deps/riak_kv/rebar.config:{require_otp_vsn, "R13B04|R14"}.
./deps/riak_search/rebar.config:{require_otp_vsn, "R13B04|R14"}.
./rebar.config:{require_otp_vsn, "R14B0[234]"}.

Build a RIAK release:
$ yum -y groupinstall "Development Tools"
$ make rel

When done:
$ su
# mv rel/riak   /opt/riak

Then, try it:
cd /opt/riak
./bin/riak console

Good luck.

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:
