I just installed 'n' using npm (npm install n -g) which worked. I then went to install the latest stable release of Node and it downloaded and compiled fine, but then stopped when copying from /usr/local/n/versions/0.10.4/include/node. I got the same error if I specified '0.10.4' instead of 'stable' and the same error for '0.10.3'.
npm install n -g
I was able to install 0.8.23, but that also seemed to end with a different error:
cp: cannot overwrite directory ./wafadmin with non-directory /usr/local/lib/node//wafadmin
(Note the double slashes before 'wafadmin')
But in the 0.8.23 case node --version gives me v0.8.23 so it seems to have mostly worked.
original installed version of node: 0.8.17
geting same error on gentoo.
