I have downlaoded the latest node package installer from their homepage https://nodejs.org/en/ and the latest package from https://nodejs.org/dist/v4.4.0/node-v4.4.0-linux-x64.tar.xz and I am trying to install it in Linux. There seems to be no instructions in the website so I have decompressed the file and I am using instructions given in README.md file. It says the following
$ ./configure $ make $ [sudo] make install
From my decompressed folder I am running theses commands,but I am getting an error:
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
For kind info: I am having Python 2.7.6, and gcc.
How to install the downloaded file "node-v4.4.0-linux-x64.tar.xz" in my ubuntu system ?
Tarballs that include the OS and CPU architecture in the filename indicate pre-compiled binary tarballs. That means there is nothing to compile, so
make install are not of any use there.
Just extract the binary tarball to whatever prefix you want. For example:
tar Jxf --strip=1 -C /usr/local node-v4.4.0-linux-x64.tar.xz
