This is the entire log:

[root at carrots rabbitmq]# more rabbit.log

like this:

$ cd ~/<SRC>
$ mkdir rabbit (this will be <RABBIT> hereunder)
$ cd <RABBIT>
$ wget http://www.rabbitmq.com/releases/rabbitmq-server/v1.5.0/rabbitmq-server-1.5.0.tar.gz
$ tar -zxvf rabbitmq-server-1.5.0.tar.gz
$ cd /usr/local/lib/erlang/lib
$ sudo ln -s <SRC>/<RABBIT>/rabbitmq-server-1.5.0 ./rabbitmq-server-1.5.0
* Add the <SRC>/<RABBIT>/rabbitmq-server/scripts to your $PATH

However, I also attempted to use the generic-unix install and was unsuccessful.

extra info:

OS: RHEL 4 (x86_64)
KERNEL: 2.6.9-67.ELsmp
