Node doesn't see packages, errors with paths


I'm trying to setup & run microtime package, but node raised an error:

npm install microtime

[email protected]:~$ node
> var microtime = require('microtime')
Error: Could not load the bindings file. Tried:

It seems to be something wrong with paths, but i dont know where to digg to solve this issue (i'm new in linux)

My conf is: ubuntu 10.04, node 0.6.13, npm 1.1.10

[email protected]: hmm, i've just tried to reinstall microtime and now it got an error (but first time it wasnt):

[email protected]:~/app1$ npm install microtime
npm http GET
npm http 304
npm http GET
npm http 304

> [email protected] install /home/ubuntu/node_modules/microtime
> node-gyp rebuild

info it worked if it ends with ok

Here is the source of your problems:

make: g++: Command not found

You need to

apt-get install build-essential

And try installing it again. Use sudo or superuser for your distro to do this.
