i am getting a ton of console errors about pnpm and/or npm (i have tried both) not being able to find any of my node modules, or having permissions problems accessing them.
every time i try to run
npm install (or
pnpm install) i get hundreds of console warnings. the latest batch all look like
npm WARN checkPermissions Missing write access to /app/client/node_modules/abbrev
(one line for every file in node_modules)
then at the end of all the warnings:
npm ERR! path /app/client/node_modules/abbrev npm ERR! code ENOENT npm ERR! errno -2 npm ERR! syscall access npm ERR! enoent ENOENT: no such file or directory, access '/app/client/node_modules/abbrev' npm ERR! enoent This is related to npm not being able to find a file. npm ERR! enoent
earlier i was getting
WARN Cannot find file at /rbd/pnpm-volume/d3241ff9-75e2-48c7-b5af-9317e1be576b/client/node_modules/abbrev although it was listed by readdir
also repeated hundreds of times for all node_modules
i have tried running
enable-npm since it seemed like an issue with pnpm, but now am getting the missing write access error.
answers to other questions in this forum have suggested
$ rm -rf node_modules/* node_modules/.*
but when i try that i get
rm: refusing to remove '.' or '..' directory: skipping 'node_modules/.' rm: refusing to remove '.' or '..' directory: skipping 'node_modules/..'
any idea how to fix this?
