Installing Riak on Mac OSX29 Jul 2011
I am evaluating various nosql solutions for our existing/new projects. Bluesmoon recommended about Riak which is an awesome nosql datastore/database (and lot more). I couldn't wait to check it out.
As usual, I relied on Homebrew - the best package manage for OSX - to install applications/libraries. While installing, I got an error:
$ brew install riak $ ... $ Error: Failed executing: make all rel
After searching for a while, I figured out that there are known issues. With the help of Adam's comment on github, I was able to install Riak finally.
We make brew ignore Riak's dependencies while building it.
Following commands should build and install Riak:
$ brew update $ brew install erlang $ brew install --HEAD --ignore-dependencies riak -v
