I try to install it with Linuxbrew. Then, it stuck at make install. I try to leave it about 20 minutes and still no change. Am I being impatient?


I have no troubles installing NodeJS with Linuxbrew, I suppose you install Linuxbrew following the instructions in the offical page. And later just install with:

brew install node

In my case, installation took 19 minutes 26 seconds but everything was fine.

You can install NodeJS this way :

curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_6.x | sudo -E bash -
sudo apt install nodejs
sudo apt install build-essential
sudo node -v && npm -v

I installed with with apt install just fine and can run servers and everything. I don't have experience with linuxbrew though.


Hi I am using eOS Loki too and I updated nodejs too, these are my simple steps that you can follow :

  1. curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_6.x | sudo -E bash -

  2. sudo apt-get install nodejs

You can check version of your nodejs with:

node -v
