I ve been trying to setup etherpad on my slicehost slice running fedora. I managed to get all the dependencies fulfilled yet it would fail compiling. (I let it run for 36+ hours and then did Ctrl+C when I realised its not really working.) Then I came across the newly released rpm for fedora 12:
This still is buggy. For example,
[root@deltacore etherpad-0]# etherpad-rebuildjar.sh
/usr/bin/etherpad-rebuildjar.sh: line 32: ../infrastructure/bin/compilecache.sh: No such file or directory
Ofcourse, because the original script has just been moved to /usr/bin without even changing the source :!
Anyways, I just tried running the etherpad server and thats when I got my major roadblock :!
[root@deltacore etherpad-0]# etherpad-run-local.sh
Using config file: /etc/etherpad.localdev-default.properties
Error occurred during initialization of VM
Could not reserve enough space for object heap
So next, I am gonna run it on my private server with better memory and see how it works.
