npm installation errors

Technical Support
  • I was following NodeBB installation document carefully and when I need to install npm, I got an error asking me to contact the author.

    npm ERR! [email protected] install: 'node-gyp rebuild'
    npm ERR! Exit status 1
    npm ERR!
    npm ERR! Failed at the [email protected] install script 'node-gyp rebuild'.
    npm ERR! This is most likely a problem with the heapdump package,
    npm ERR! not with npm itself.
    npm ERR! Tell the author that this fails on your system:
    npm ERR! node-gyp rebuild
    npm ERR! You can get their info via:
    npm ERR! npm owner ls heapdump
    npm ERR! There is likey additional logging output above.

    And here's the log.
    Can't attach, so here's the link.

  • It means your system environment is not compatible. also check the whether the packaged required are all successfully installed

    It also took me a little bit time to settle down some package problems in a Linux server which some other application are running on it.

  • I'm simply testing NodeBB on my computer and it's not compatible with my computer? Well, guess what? I just installed NodeBB and it's working fine. Any ideas?

  • Discard this. I just decided to use on cloud instead anyway and npm installation worked fine.
