Cool! Now the npm on My Box work smoothly with node v0.6.0

Yesterday, I’m getting stuck that the npm installed on my box doesn’t work with node v0.6.0. Do I have revert to node v0.4.0. or just stick with the v0.6.0?

This morning I’m trying to find out the answer by search on the npm github project with the query is “npm doesn’t work” and this what I got:

Isaacs said "Upgrade your version of npm."

Isaacs said "Upgrade your version of npm."

Yes, on one of the search result he said “Upgrade your version of npm”. Well, I followed the instruction to upgrade the version of my npm by using this command:

curl | sudo sh

ghazali@xxx-devenvironment:/opt$  curl | sudo sh
