I'm getting an error when trying to install geocouch:

rake git="git:// geocouch"

I get the following error:

rm_f /home/2bulls/couch-source/build-couchdb/build/bin/autom4te
git checkout HEAD src/couchdb/priv/couch_js/utf8.h
error: pathspec 'src/couchdb/priv/couch_js/utf8.h' did not match any file(s) known to git.
rake aborted!
Command failed with status (1): [git checkout HEAD src/couchdb/priv/couch_j...]

GeoCouch is now a plugin at I will update the README accordingly.

Does this mean I can no longer use build-couchdb to install geocouch? Would it be possible to point to a previous revision that does work.

I use build-couchdb to build GeoCouch every day! So it should work.

However, these days, GeoCouch is a plugin, so you should be doing something like (from memory) rake plugin="git:// origin/master" (or instead of origin/master, a tag which works with CouchDB 1.1.x)

I updated the read me on a different workstation and forgot to git push :) It should reflect the new way to make GeoCouch and once it's pushed I'll close this ticket.
