I would like to install NodeJS version 0.8.18 on Ubuntu 12.04. I tried to install the newest version and then reverting to 0.8.18 by using
Chris Lea has 0.8.23 in his ppa repo.
This package let you add a repository to apt-get: (You can also do this manually)
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
Add Chris Lea's repository:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:chris-lea/node.js-legacy
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nodejs=0.8.23-1chl1~precise1
I think (feel free to edit) the version number is optional if you only add node.js-legacy. If you add both legacy and ppa/chris-lea/node.js you most likely need to add the version.
