Sorry for naive question.

I followed the installation guide but I got issue on executing the helloworld.js.

Here is the trace:

Thanks for the report. This could be a little bug in lib/index.js, where it cannot find the built binary module 'nwebkit'.

Could you please try to edit lib/index.js and point it to the right path of the binary module?

I saw then edited lib/index.js that point to the nwebkit.node in build/default/ folder but still does not work.

I only saw the nwebkit.node file in build/default/ folder.

Where do I should looking the binary module of nwebkit?

what I saw in the wscript file is:

srcdir = "."
blddir = "build"
VERSION = "0.0.1"

Thanks for your support

to identify the problem could you attach your index.js and the output file '/tmp/trace.log' of the following command?

strace -f -o /tmp/trace.log node tests/helloworld.js tests/testfs.html

and what's your node version?

Old webkit module will not be maintained, so I close this issue.
