Recently I wanted to checkout the Diaspora project, and to my despair I faced lot of problems
installing it in Windows OS.
I could not install it on Windows, and I did'nt want to invest lot of time , as it was not important and I was trying
this only for killing my time. However, I installed it on a VM (Ubuntu) and faced a few problems.
This post is about keeping a note of what I faced and use it in future (if needed).
