Hi Alain,

Thanks for the reply ! The exact error message is in the gist mentioned
previously .
I essentially hit the issues references here :
http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.db.riak.user/9102
These looks like packaging issues ,so I nuked the ring dir and Riak would
then start.

Problem solved :-)

Thanks,

John
