Erlang was already installed:

$dpkg -l|grep erlang

Erlang seems to work:

$ erl
Erlang R13B03 (erts-5.7.4) [source] [64-bit] [smp:2:2] [rq:2] [async-threads:0] [hipe] [kernel-poll:false]

Eshell V5.7.4  (abort with ^G)

I downloaded lfe from github and checked out 0.5.2:

git clone
cd lfe
git checkout -b local0.5.2 e207eb2cad

$ configure
configure: command not found

$ make
mkdir -p ebin
erlc -I include -o ebin -W0 -Ddebug +debug_info src/*.erl
#erl -I -pa ebin -noshell -eval -noshell -run edoc file src/leex.erl -run init stop
#erl -I -pa ebin -noshell -eval -noshell -run edoc_run application "'Leex'" '"."' '[no_packages]'
#mv src/*.html doc/

Must be something stupid i missed :o

$ sudo make install
make: *** No rule to make target `install'.  Stop.

$ erl -noshell -noinput -s lfe_boot start
{"init terminating in do_boot",{undef,[{lfe_boot,start,[]},{init,start_it,1},{init,start_em,1}]}}

Crash dump was written to: erl_crash.dump
init terminating in do_boot ()

Is there an example how I would create a hello world source file and compile and run it?
