NPM install error when trying to add zmq


#1

Hi,

I was trying to add the NPM zmq package to work with a ZeroMQ subscription but the package failed to install. I know zqm needs to compile when installed, on my Windows laptop it require Python 2.7 to be in the path to do so but the error message there is somewhat different.

Searching for this error I found (https://github.com/JustinTulloss/zeromq.node/issues/456) a possible solution in apt-get install libzmq3 libzmq3-dev and another one (https://github.com/JustinTulloss/zeromq.node/issues/281) that suggest yum install zeromq-devel.

What are the recommended steps to get this to work?

The project URL is https://hyperdev.com/#!/project/pyrite-rain

BTW It seems I am not able to view the contents of npm-debug.log

Thanks,
Maurice

You can only write to /tmp when the container is running. Prior to that, during preinstall, you can write to the filesystem, so you might be able to install the components you need then (FYI: the containers run Ubuntu Xenial). Frost-kicker for example, uses this technique to install and setup Python. Note though that the container is removed after 15 minutes.

Some back-end improvements that we’re working on will remove such limitations. We hope to have them available in a few weeks.


#3

Doing an apt-get install zeromq-devel produces the following error

E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?
1:50 PM

The lock file is there but it seems I can’t update it.

My Linux skills are not great so there might be something obvious I am not seeing here.


#4

You need to preface commands that require root with ‘sudo’.


#5

Did try that but sudo isn’t a known command.

./install/setup-project.sh: line 5: sudo: command not found


#6

It looks like our base image may be missing some packages required for zmq. We’ll try and add them soon and update here when we do. Thanks for your patience!
