Error installing dotfile requirements: Could not link global install, node install.js

Hi,

I’m encountering an issue at this line in the dotfiles installation:

> node install.js

Here’s the output:

> node install.js

Considering PhantomJS found at /Users/Cheetah/.nvm/versions/node/v6.10.1/bin/phantomjs
Looks like an `npm install -g`
Could not link global install, skipping...

I’ve read other topics and tried several of the solutions to no avail. Here are some details of my configuration so far:

  • .bash_profile is in root directory, and matches a/a dotfiles
  • .bashrc is in root directory, and matches a/a dotfiles
  • which ruby produces /Users/Cheetah/.rbenv/shims/ruby
  • ~$ echo $PATH produces /Users/Cheetah/.nvm/versions/node/v6.10.1/bin:/Users/Cheetah/.rbenv/shims:/Applications/Postgres.app/Contents/Versions/latest/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/Applications/Postgres.app/Contents/Versions/latest/bin

Any help is appreciated. Thanks,

Mary

Actually, uninstalling and then re-installing the dotfiles resolved this. Thanks!
