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:

    yum localinstall --nogpgcheck nodejs-stable-release.noarch.rpm
    yum install nodejs-compat-symlinks npm
    rm nodejs-stable-release.noarch.rpm

    Open in new window


    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.

    I managed to get python updated and now the install works fine.
