require.paths is removed... #31

Hello guys.
I just wanted to try out hummingbird, but cannot start it.
I installed node, npm and mongo-db on a Ubuntu 10.04 and get the following error while starting:

michaelwhi@server:~/hummingbird$ node server.js

throw e; // process.nextTick error, or 'error' event on first tick
Error: require.paths is removed. Use node_modules folders, or the NODE_PATH environment variable instead.
at Function. (module.js:360:11)
at Object. (/home/michaelwhi/hummingbird/server.js:1:70)
at Module._compile (module.js:416:26)
at Object..js (module.js:434:10)
at Module.load (module.js:335:31)
at Function._load (module.js:294:12)
at Array. (module.js:454:10)
at EventEmitter._tickCallback (node.js:195:26)

Do you have any ideas how to fix this? I already added the path variable:

michaelwhi@server:~$ echo $NODE_PATH

Since I'm new to node.js I have no idea what to do now... So thanks a lot for any help!


It looks like you're using Node 0.5. Right now Hummingbird only works on node 0.4.x, though I'll be removing the require.paths to make it work with 0.5 in the future.

Hummingbird now works in node 0.5.x, except for the geoip module which doesn't yet support 0.5.
