Thanks for your reply Simon, much appreciated.

We've had numerous problems, mostly with Erlang it seems to be fair, but
we're also on EC2 Linux which I know is not a preferred platform. We were
attempting to install both from source as we've had stability issues with
the RPM mirrors we were using for 2.5.1.

Anyway, we now have 2.8.0 running via Puppet configuration which is neat. I
may well publish the manifests as it might save a few people some
significant hacking!

Many thanks again,
