I'm trying to get RabbitMQ setup, but something funky is going on with my dependencies. I'm running a Debian 7.1 that will be used as a server, hence has no desktop environment. I try to install rabbitmq-server using aptitude:
$ apt-get install rabbitmq-server Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package rabbitmq-server is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source. E: Package 'rabbitmq-server' has no installation candidate
Getting the .deb file from the RabbitMQ site yields the following dependency error:
$ dpkg -i rabbitmq-server_3.1.3-1_all.deb Selecting previously unselected package rabbitmq-server. (Reading database ... 31422 files and directories currently installed.) Unpacking rabbitmq-server (from rabbitmq-server_3.1.3-1_all.deb) ... dpkg: dependency problems prvent configuration of rabbitmq-server: rabbitmq-server depends on erlang-nox (>= 1:12.b.3) | esl-erlang; however: Package erlang-nox is not installed. Package esl-erlang is not installed.
Trying to install erlang-nox by itself yields similar results:
$ apt-get install erlang-nox Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package erlang-nox is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source. E: Package 'erlang-nox' has no installation candidate
My sources list is the following:
$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list ... deb http://security.debian.org wheezy/updates main contrib deb-src http://security.debian.org wheezy/updates main contrib #deb http://www.rabbitmq.com/debian testing main
The last line was added after I failed to install rabbiqmq-server through the above procedures, but did not work either.
I tried installing erlang manually (compiling and using make install), but rabbitmq still complained about it and would not install.
Any pointers as to what could possibly be wrong here?
