clean cache doesn't work


with cleaning the cache before retrying it.


v0.11.8-pre is the version I am using.


does using node 0.10.20 (stable), npm cache clean after installing 0.10.20 and retrying it solve the problem for you?


how to downgrade? is there any command or i should delete and start over?


That depends on how you installed node. If you installed it from source then

sudo make uninstall

will do the job.


Thanks very much.That worked
