nodejs on debian


im trying to install node.js on debian. iíve downloaded the source code extracted the tar archive and moved to the folder. when I try and run ./configure, i get no such file or directory. so I have added bin folder of nodejs inside my $PATH and exported it. export PATH=$PATH:/nodejs/bin still doesn't work

can you specify the location (what you have downloaded)? Have you already checked if a file named configure exists somewhere (use the command find)? Does it have execute permission?

" node.js " is provided by a couple of Debian packages ..

I've downloaded node-v0.10.33-linux-x86, changed the path by "export PATH=$PATH:/nodejs/bin", "source ~/bashrc" moved to node-v0* directory. If I do "find ./ -name configure -print" i get "./lib/node_modules/npm/configure" but if I do
"./configure" i get bash: ./configure: No such file or directory. If i do "./lib/node_modules/npm/configure" then I don't get an error but it just displays the prompt, it doesn't seem to do anything. makefile is not created.

I think you need to cd into ./lib/node_modules/npm and execute ./configure

That's a binary package, and without the file node.js .

The source http://cnpmjs.org/dist/ , e.g. node-latest.tar.gz
. http://cnpmjs.u.qiniudn.com/dist/node-latest.tar.gz
→ → the text file node.js can be found in "src/"
