This looks like a DNS issue.

Hi... Thanx for the response. I'm new to the beagleboard/bone thing :) How would I resolve this issue???

Is this still a problem for you?

If it's a DNS problem, you will need to make sure your beagleboard has an appropriate resolv.conf file -- see!topic/beagleboard/6VCaDabyowk

We are trying to clean up older npm issues, so if we don't hear back from you within a week, we will close this issue. (Don't worry -- you can always come back again and open a new issue!)
