I am using Ubuntu 11.10 , node-waf configure has no issue but build throws this error

Waf: Entering directory /home/anand/Downloads/node-sqlite/build' [1/2] cxx: -> build/Release/sqlite3_bindings_1.o ../ fatal error: node_events.h: No such file or directory compilation terminated. Waf: Leaving directory/home/anand/Downloads/node-sqlite/build'
Build failed: -> task failed (err #1):
{task: cxx -> sqlite3_bindings_1.o}

The same just happened for me. Did you find any workaround?

@schteppe i tired re-installing entire thing, still facing same issue.

$ node-waf configure

Node path not found..? But:

$ echo $NODE_PATH

...should be OK.

People seem to have started using this package instead:

It is called "sqlite3" in the NPM registry.

@schteppe ya thanks ... it works! really thank you so much.

No problem! I would suggest @orlandov to put a note in the readme about this to avoid future confusion.

ChangeLog:* #1335 Remove EventEmitter from C++

that object (and include file) was removed from node around v0.5.2
