I want to install node.js on CentOS
- unfortunately i'm having trouble installing gcc (and all of the things that generally come with it in order to get node to even compile) on centOS via commandline.
What I've tried so far
sudo yum install gccI get the following error
Downloading Packages: Running rpm_check_debug Running Transaction Test memory alloc (8 bytes) returned NULL.
and yes I have set the ulimit prefs to 'unlimited'.
- I have also attempted installing the depencies individually although this was only possible with a couple whereas the rest (i.e glibc) require to install with dependencies and give me the same error:
memory alloc (8 bytes) returned NULL..
- I have also attempted installing the rpm's of individual dependencies (i.e glibc) however rpm throws the same error of
memory alloc (8 bytes) returned NULL.which was pretty annoying.
What I have deduced
- I think (and hope) it may be a simple preferences issue, since i am able to install smaller files ( <10mb or something ) without error.
