Bug Description

Binary package hint: couchdb

For CouchDB, you need to install xulrunner-1.9.1. When installing just CouchDB via apt:

Setting up couchdb (0.10.0~svn806985-0ubuntu1) ...
 * Starting database server couchdb
/usr/bin/couchdb: 38: xulrunner-1.9.1: not found [fail]
invoke-rc.d: initscript couchdb, action "start" failed.

Install xulrunner-19.1:

Selecting previously deselected package xulrunner-1.9.1.
Unpacking xulrunner-1.9.1 (from .../xulrunner-1.9.1_1.9.1.2+nobinonly-0ubuntu3_i386.deb) ...
Setting up couchdb (0.10.0~svn806985-0ubuntu1) ...
 * Starting database server couchdb [ OK ]

The couchdb package needs to depend on xulrunner-1.9.1 instead of 1.9

Affects installation of Chef Server, which depends on CouchDB. Once the xulrunner-1.9.1 package is installed, it finishes configuring everything fine, though.

Attached is the change Elliot made to the couchdb snapshot package we had in the private UbuntuOne PPA. It should solve the problem.

It looks like it is missing a patch to the debian/control file to update the xulrunner-1.9 dependency to xulrunner-1.9.1 though.

Actually, looks like the above patch is already in the karmic package. Sorry for noise.

No worries, I talked to SteveA on #couchdb and he said this was known and pending an update. Thanks James!
