This often indicates that mnesia isn't installed. (It's complaining that 
it can't find the function mnesia:system_info/1.)

Some operating systems have mnesia in an optional erlang package that's 
not installed as part of the base erlang system - for instance, Ubuntu 
is rumoured to need you to "apt-get install erlang", rather than simple 
erlang-base, in order to get things to work. (This isn't something I've 
experienced personally, so I could have the details wrong!)

(I'm not sure if this is a bug in our Debian package dependencies or 
not. Any reports from the field?)
