Bug Description

Binary package hint: couchdb

This is what gets written to the logs:

[Thu, 17 Mar 2011 12:46:38 GMT] [debug] [<0.25631.1>] OS Process Start :: #Port<0.41331>
[Thu, 17 Mar 2011 12:46:38 GMT] [debug] [<0.25631.1>] OS Process #Port<0.41331> Input :: ["reset",{"reduce_limit":true}]
[Thu, 17 Mar 2011 12:46:38 GMT] [error] [<0.399.0>] OS Process Error <0.25631.1> :: {os_process_error,{exit_status,127}}

Attempting to run couchjs results in the following:
rtg@buzz:/etc/couchdb$ /usr/bin/couchjs /usr/share/couchdb/server/main.js
/usr/lib/couchdb/bin/couchjs: error while loading shared libraries: libmozjs.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This is happening because xulrunner-2.0-mozjs puts libmozjs.so in /usr/lib/xulrunner-2.0 directory and /usr/bin/couchjs does the following lookup:
for i in /usr/lib/xulrunner-2.0b* /usr/lib/xulrunner-2.0.0.* ; do
    if [ -f ${i}/libmozjs.so ] ; then

This bug was fixed in the package couchdb - 1.0.1-0ubuntu13

couchdb (1.0.1-0ubuntu13) natty; urgency=low

  * Fix LP: #736847 - couchjs doesn't search in xulrunner release path
    for libmozjs. I made it search in all paths for the 2.0 beta and
    point releases, but missed this one. D'oh!
    - update debian/mozjs1.9_ldlibpath.patch
