Node.js Question

NPM erros when installing zombie 4.2.1 on Centos 6.7

I'm running a vagrant

box. My node version is
and my npm version is
. When I run
npm install zombie@4.2
I get the following error:

node-gyp rebuild

make: Entering directory `/home/vagrant/zombie-test/node_modules/bufferutil/build'

../../nan/nan.h:43:3: error: #error This version of node/NAN/v8 requires a C++11 compiler

Full stack trace here

Both node and npm were installed using this instructions:

$ curl --silent --location | bash -
$ yum -y install nodejs

Any known solutions for this error?


You'll need a newer gcc/g++ version (the one that ships with CentOS6 is way too old). Take a look at this: - where you can update the building tools to decent/recent versions.
