bcrypt no se instala en ubuntu

Intenté instalar bcrypt in Ubuntu but got following error. I can't understand error message properly. Here is some discussion regarding to the same problem : https://github.com/ncb000gt/node.bcrypt.js/issues/90 but still no solution found.

I have also tried to update npm(npm install -g npm) and installing the bcrypt with no luck.

is it possible for you to use a more 'stable' version of node.js ? You might also want to try installing the bcrypt package locally instead of globally. It might be possible that you are missing some libraries that bcrypt requires. Check out stackoverflow.com/a/20895568/732396 -

@yanhan thanks a lot , I get rid of this problem after installing the stable version of node as you suggested. -

good to know you've solved your problem. I've added my comment as an answer; if you're kind enough to award me the answer, I thank you in advance -

Updating npm helped me solve this issue sudo npm update -g npm -

Use the latest stable version of node.js. bcrypt hasn't been ported to node 0.11.x.

If you are using a git clone, simply cd into the tree and checkout 0.10.26-release:

git checkout v0.10.26-release

Then configure, make, and install as usual. Then try installing bcrypt again:

npm install -g bcrypt

Credit goes to yanhan. He pointed me in the right direction. I just wanted to post the specific commands that would fix it.

I had the same problem using Node v0.10.28. Used NVM to switch to v0.10.26 and bcrypt installed without a hitch. - dios cero

i have same problem but i fixed it

i used instead of npm yarn

yarn is package manager like npm

first install yarn your system then use this command to install bcrypt

yarn add bcrypt

Es posible que desee intentar instalar bcrypt with a more stable version of node.js . It might be also possible that you are missing some libraries that bcrypt requires, see https://stackoverflow.com/a/20895568/732396

Change you node version from 0.11.x a 0.10.x as bcrypt is not ported into 0.11.x.

si tiene n (node version manager) installed then run:

n 0.10.x
(e.g x=26 or x=24 etc.)

Entonces corre:

npm instalar bcrypt

inside your project directory. To install n corrida

npm install n

I've had a similar problem. Nothing worked, but what managed to do the trick was installing bcryptjs en lugar de bcrypt.
