C Lib


Couchbase C lib installation on OSX (10.9.3) it’s huge pain. After installing seems like MySQL server goes down.

Can you please provide more details as to how you are using libcouchbase with mysql?


Just installed through Homebrew. (But it was also through ass due error)
sudo chown -R whoami /usr/local
brew tap homebrew/dupes
brew install apple-gcc42
After change owner back
