Rabbitmq 2.7.1-1 and erlang R14B-04.1

We normally use CentOS 5.7 which has its shortcomings.  In order to try 
CentOS 6.2 I installed it into an Oracle(Sun) VirtualBox VM.  That all 
works fine.

Among the infrastructure that we need are postgres and memcached - they 
install and run fine.

For rabbit, stated by making an EPEL repo then installed both erlang and 

Try to start rabbitmq - service rabbitmq-server - and I get:

Epmd started up.  I think the next thing to start is beam.smp (looking at
