I've been trying to install Bower via NPM and keep getting this error:

I'm using NPM version 1.3.21 and Node version 0.10.24


hm, notice it's looking for it in /usr/local/Cellar/node/0.8.14, though your node version says v0.10.24.

Maybe try brew uninstall node, then reinstall node+npm.

@pelargir , Is this still a problem for you?

@timoxley gave a good suggestion above -- it looks like two different installations of node are conflicting.

There have been a lot of improvements to npm -- especially around conflicts and race conditions during install -- since 1.3.21. Can you try updating your npm installation?

To update npm, run npm -g install npm@latest

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!)



Closing as resolved / abandoned.
