Further to my post about the Blackdog, here are the binaries and setup instructions to get Erlang and Yaws running on it.
Copy these files to the blackdog then, assuming you don't have stow already installed, perform the following to install Erlang and Stow from within a blackdog xterm:
mkdir /usr/local/stow cd /usr/local/stow tar jxvf /root/otp_R10B-8.tar.bz2 tar jxvf /root/stow.tar.bz2 stow-1.3.3/bin/stow stow-1.3.3 stow otp_R10B-8
I compiled Yaws to be installed locally so the steps for that are slightly different:
cd /root tar jxvf yaws.tar.bz2
Edit the 'yaws.conf' file to reflect what you want or you can leave it at the default to test the installation. To run:
export PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:$PATH ldconfig cd /root bin/yaws -i -c yaws.conf
This runs Yaws in 'interactive' mode. Visiting http://localhost:8000 should confirm things worked by showing the yaws standard install. To exit interactive mode and shut down Yaws press CTRL+G and press 'q' and enter.
Erlang can be run as usual with 'erl'.
