fatal error: nan.h: No such file or directory
I need help. I'm trying to install a fresh copy of nodebb and I'm getting this error:
I've done the same procedure last week and the installation worked fine.

Thanks in advance
We don't have a module dependency for
utf-8-validate, please remove it and try again...
Thanks you Julian,
It worked. I deleted utf-8-validate and bufferutil section from npm-shrinkwrap.json and after
npm install --production, everithing gone well.
Thanks @feio -- are you on v0.9.x branch? Interesting that it's in
npm-shrinkwrap.json... I hope nobody else gets this error...!
@julian yes, I'm using version 0.9.3.

I got the same error when I pulled the last tag, however when I switched to the master branch the error disapeared.
I am having this error, when trying to update my Dockerfile to use the v0.9.x branch. I will try the master.
I submitted the changes suggested by @feio in a PR, because I couldn't progress in updating my docker container to 0.9.x without them.
Thanks @fbmac -- really weird that those were added to the shrinkwrap file. I did publish it in Node v5, so perhaps that is why?

I had this same problem after upgrading from 0.9.1 to 0.9.3 (running Node 4.2.2), ended up resolving by removing that
@tednology Hm, I don't see that module defined in v0.9.x's
