After doing a reinstall of my system and nodejs and a lot of other things I arrive at installing bower - but it is said to be locked.
Anybody have a key for that lock?
Here is my log
jonas$ npm install -g bower

Uhm, is that the whole error log? Can you post the npm-debug.log in a gist?
I just had similar types of errors, I think because HOME wasn't set to match the user my script was running as.
I believe this issue has been addressed by the resolution to #6043, which is included in the latest stable version of npm, firstname.lastname@example.org. Please upgrade npm and this problem should go away. Thanks for your patience!
