I installed node.js with these commands:
$ sudo git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/joyent/node.git $ cd node $ export JOBS=2 $ sudo mkdir ~/local $ sudo ./configure --prefix=$HOME/local/node $ sudo make $ sudo make install $ export PATH=$HOME/local/node/bin:$PATH
It executed without error. Not sure how to confirm that node.js is actually installed though.
I then tried to install node package manager with the following commands:
$ sudo git clone http://github.com/isaacs/npm.git $ cd npm $ sudo make install
The last command had a lot of output but the last few lines were:
make: Entering directory `/var/www/node/npm'
node cli.js install https://github.com/isaacs/ronnjs/tarball/master
bash: node: command not found
make: *** [node_modules/ronn] Error 127
make: Leaving directory `/var/www/node/npm'
make: *** [man/man3/author.3] Error 2
npm does not get installed, but the directory is there. Not sure what I need to do?
