During npm install socket.io I get error 127, node-waf command not found. How to solve it?

I am trying to install socket.io on centos 5 with node.js package manager. During installation, I got an error:

"make: node -waf: command not found
" This is most likely a problem with the ws package

What is "node-waf" and how can I solve this problem?

This is related to issue 773 on socket.io git https://github.com/LearnBoost/socket.io/issues/773

"node-waf is a tool that comes with Node.js for creating C ++ files in a Node.js library or tool. It is only available if you have installed Node.js from the source" http: //apphacker.wordpress .com / 2011/09/12 / node-waf-command-not-found /

so run this to get the missing dependencies for me sudo apt-get install nodejs-dev



Make sure node-waf is not in your path.

$ which is node-waf

Mine is located in / usr / local / bin / node-waf, so if that doesn't work try

$ ls / usr / local / bin / node-waf

If you still can't find it, it's in the tools directory inside node. You may need to reinstall.



It's also worth noting that node-waf has been removed in any version of node since 0.9.1:




If you still need this old version (eg 0.9.0) of socket.io file, consider installing version 0.9.2.

 npm install socket.io@0.9.2
