I was able to install CouchDB fine on my Samsung Captivate android phone using the app in the market. When I try and install it on my Samsung Galaxy I update the binaries, then I get an error:

{"error":"unknown_error","reason":"badarg"}

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but no luck. Any suggestions?

What model do you have? "Samsung Galaxy" covers at least a dozen phones. –  Matthew Read Apr 15 '11 at 15:09
    
Sorry you're right - it's a Samsung Galaxy Tablet. –  user4404 Apr 15 '11 at 22:03

Thats a strange error, currently there are 2 common problems with the CouchDB install,

  1. is that it isnt currently supported on 2.3.3 and above
  2. is that your external storage isnt mounted on /sdcard/ (or it is currently mounted as a drive)

are either of those true? if so then they are already on https://github.com/couchbaselabs/couch-android-launcher/issues and I will update there when they are fixed, if not if you could run adb logcat it would be extremely useful

I would guess it's (2) -- my Galaxy S has external storage mounted as /sdcard/external_sd/. –  Matthew Read Apr 15 '11 at 18:49
    
Thanks guys - sounds like 2 is a good candidate, as I am running the stock firmware which I believe is 2.2 (I don't have it with me). I will check the mount point and look into changing it. –  user4404 Apr 15 '11 at 22:05
