Script to install Erlang R15B01 (tested on a fresh Ubuntu 12.04 install)
# You will need to make this file executable (chmod u+x) and run it with sudo
apt-get update
apt-get --fix-missing -y install build-essential m4 libncurses5-dev libssh-dev unixodbc-dev libgmp3-dev libwxgtk2.8-dev libglu1-mesa-dev fop xsltproc default-jdk
mkdir -p /src/erlang
cd /src/erlang
tar -xvzf otp_src_R15B01.tar.gz
chmod -R 777 otp_src_R15B01
cd otp_src_R15B01
make install


  • 15B -> 15B01
  • I had trouble with libssh -> added apt-get update & --fix-missing

is chmod -R 777 necessary?
