I have two Ubuntu 12.10 machines: machine A is a VMWare VM and machine B is and old Acer laptop. On both machines, I installed node using apt-get. However machine A installs the main binary as
/usr/bin/node and machine B as
/usr/bin/nodejs. Here are some behaviors I observed:
- Both machine returns
/usr/bin/nodein response to the
which nodecommand. However, there is no such file on machine B.
- Issuing the command
nodeworks for machine A, not B. On B, I have to use
- On B, there is a binary called /sbin/node, A does not have it.
These behaviors causes inconsistency problem when developing on both machines. For now, I worked around by renaming the binaries on B as such:
sudo mv /sbin/node /sbin/node-sbin sudo ln -s /usr/bin/nodejs /usr/bin/node
Is there a way to really fix this, so that node will be installed as
/usr/bin/node instead of
