Hello Luke. Allright, so I completed a clean installation of riak without
installing erlang, what I did is that I created a new Virtual Machine and
installed riak from apt-get like you said. I edited the /etc/riak/riak.conf
file like mentioned before, changing the name to riak at which is
my static IP, and all the other 3 things that need to be changed. In
terminal went sudo -s, then riak start and got the next message from riak

root at ubuntu:~# riak start
!!!! WARNING: ulimit -n is 1024; 65536 is the recommended minimum.
riak failed to start within 15 seconds,
see the output of 'riak console' for more information.
If you want to wait longer, set the environment variable
WAIT_FOR_ERLANG to the number of seconds to wait.

I am new riak user, so I don't understand what might be wrong :/
