After installation, re-execute . /configure command again and found a new problem.

configure: error: Perl version 5 is required to build the emulator!
ERROR: /usr/local/otp_src_24.3.2/erts/configure failed!

Then we install another one

# yum install perl

Then there are new problems:

configure: error: No curses library functions found
ERROR: /usr/local/otp_src_24.3.2/erts/configure failed!

At this time, you need to install the log Library:

# yum -y install ncurses-devel

Then re-execute ./configure command, no exception~

Set environment variables:

# vi /etc/profile

Press Enter to go to the bottom, then press keyboard i to enter edit mode and configure the environment variables.

#set erlang environment
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/erlang/bin

After the configuration is completed, press ESC to exit the editing mode and enter the Save command:


Refresh the profile to take effect:

# source /etc/profile

Check whether Erlang is successfully installed:

[[email protected] otp_src_24.3.2]# erl -version
Erlang (SMP,ASYNC_THREADS) (BEAM) emulator version 12.3
