On CentOS 6.3 64-bit, I've installed Node.JS version 0.6.18 using
I have an application that requires Node.JS v0.8.x. The currently stable version of Node.JS available is 0.8.7, which is perfect. Unfortunately, the site that hosts the RPMs for Node is not very up-to-date, and does not have an RPM for version 0.8.x at this time.
- Is there another source for RPMs that may have the latest stable build?
- If not, is there a crafty way to roll my own RPM? (I do not have
rpmbuildavailabe on my system.)
- If not, what is the best way to remove my current yum-installed version of Node.JS and install from the tarball of binaries, while making sure the correct versions of V8 and such get installed? (I prefer not to build from source... disk space is tight, and installing GCC might put me close to, or over quota.)
