Install fails at:

/usr/local/Library/Homebrew/install.rb:38:in `dump': no marshal_dump is defined for class StringIO (TypeError)

brew install -v couchdb: https://gist.github.com/1147045
brew doctor: https://gist.github.com/1147046

Gist your brew --config please.

@rybesh

After removing and re-installing Erlang, now "brew install couchdb" just hangs (or maybe it's just taking a really long time).

@rybesh

But "brew install -v couchdb" runs without problems, and the install completes. Weird.

Same problem here:

  1. install was hanging
  2. I killed it (Ctrl-C)
  3. I retried (without -v) and it worked fine
@mandeluna

same here. hangs during make, so maybe there's a circular dependency

@Damion

yup - hung for 2hrs on make. (had no idea how long it should take)

Thank you rybesh, simleb. killed it, and it and "brew install -v couchdb" was finished in 35 seconds.

@dch

for completeness, I've never had this for CouchDB any version. Would be interested to know what version of erlang was used and if there are any brew logs available.

@StephanHoyer

same here

@emjayess

This just happened to me; I clean-installed Lion just a week ago. If it helps...

erl -version
reports
Erlang (SMP,ASYNC_THREADS,HIPE) (BEAM) emulator version 5.9

@vish86

Same thing happened to me as well, Killed it and reinstalled with a -v and finished in 30 seconds. Thanks for your comments!

@dch

@vish86 for clarity is this after installing 1.2.0 from the new recipes?

In particular I'd like to know if the instructions in http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/Installing_on_OSX were done - i.e. this happens on the newer R15B01 erlang as well.

Not sure if I can help resolve it as I've never had the issue myself.

@DaveEveritt

Same hang - with a first install of homebrew - brew install couchdb hung at make install. Killed the job, brew install -v couchdb completed in 90 seconds. OS X 10.5.8, Erlang R15B01.

@dch

@DaveEveritt thanks, if I understand this you are using homebrew for the first time, and a (relatively) old Mac OS X version? What C compiler or XCode version? Until somebody catches a log of this happening, I don't see much chance of tracking this down.

@DaveEveritt

Yes, installed Homebrew today to get CouchDB easily. It's Leopard, XCode 3.1.4, gcc -v Target: i686-apple-darwin9 [...] gcc version 4.0.1 (Apple Inc. build 5493). Let me know if you need more, like my terminal readout, which I can save...

@DaveEveritt

On killing the process, there were some (possibly) interesting messages - see the bottom of this terminal readout of brew install couchdb.

@dch
@DaveEveritt

Before I try that - I ran brew doctor and the results are here (plenty of warnings). Although one states that homebrew isn't installed to /usr/local, it's there - and working - at /usr/local/homebrew ? BTW I previously used /usr/local for other installs (mysql, mongo...)

@chrisballinger

It hung for me as well on make install while installing version 1.2.0. I was able to fix it by running brew install -v couchdb. Thanks!

@fmquaglia

Same here, trying to install 1.2.0 on Mountain Lion.

It hung on make install as well.
Running brew install -v couchdb fixed it.
Thanks a lot @rybesh

Please open a new issue if there are install failures; this is a very old bug about a previous version.

@natevw

This is still happening with CouchDB 1.4.0-1, not sure I have much to contribute to a new issue, but I don't think it has much to do with Erlang or the like. The build was simply hung with a few libtool processes just sitting there. ^C and then try again, it quickly finished up without issue.
