Does anyone have a foolproof method for installing these on Centos 5
All examples I can find either don't work, download old versions, or just burp during install.

Have you tried the following:

wget http://nodejs.tchol.org/repocfg/el/nodejs-stable-release.noarch.rpm
yum localinstall --nogpgcheck nodejs-stable-release.noarch.rpm
yum install nodejs-compat-symlinks npm
rm nodejs-stable-release.noarch.rpm

Open in new window


(From: https://github.com/joyent/node/wiki/Installing-Node.js-via-package-manager)

If yes, what error did you get (cut-n-paste)?

I cannot remember now, have had other things to do in the meantime, but one of the problems I've since discovered was Python, I couldn't get it to update to 2.7 and be recognised as the correct version when running the install.
I will be trying this later on again today.
