Cannot Install Riak

Hey Nick,

Not solving your problem, but I known the excited-why-wont-this-work-right-now sentiment.  I had a riak cluster up and running in very little time using Centos 5.6 and the rpm's from basho (riak-1.1.1-1.el5.x86_64.rpm). No errors, and as I recall, no requirements.   Adding addition nodes is no time at all.  But then, my stuff is on ec2 using:

 RightImage_CentOS_5.6_x64_v5.6.35 (ami-991adcf0)

Best of luck,

Thanks for the help. I made some progress and I got it working using the 1.1.2 build.

But I wanted to try multiple nodes on local machine which requires a build from source. Now I'm getting more issues.

Please see here:

Thanks for your time. Sorry if I sound moody. This just annoyed me because I was so excited to play with riak and erlang. ah well - such is life.

Its possible what you don`t have one of required libraries, it seems you  are missing something from protobuf requirements, try building from scratch manually.
just cd to protobuff dir and ./configure and make.
