Re: http://zotonic.com/docs/0.9/tutorials/install.html#tutorial-install-deb

Installing from the Ubuntu repo per these instructions can fail with this error:

Compiling c_src/iconv_drv.c
c_src/iconv_drv.c:12:24: fatal error: erl_driver.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.

Workaround : Install the erlang-dev package first.
It seems as though erlang-dev may need to be added as a dependency
in the zotonic package definition.

apt-get install erlang-dev

@arjan any action for this, or should we just close it?


arjan commented Sep 20, 2013

No I'll need to update the dependencies for the package

0.9.3 has been released! :)

In the Ubuntu package, I added erlang-dev as a dependency, so this should solve this issue. @mdepot please reopen if this issue reoccurs.
