Can't set up the develpment environment

Hi, I'm trying to set up the dev env in kibana to be able to write plugins later.
I'm having trouble with the "npm run elasticsearch" command. It generates this error : sana@sana:~/kibana$ sudo npm run elasticsearch [sudo] password for sana:

kibana@6.0.0-alpha2 elasticsearch /home/sana/kibana
grunt esvm:dev:keepalive

Node Sass could not find a binding for your current environment: Linux 64-bit with Node.js 6.x

Found bindings for the following environments:

  • Linux 64-bit with Node.js 4.x

This usually happens because your environment has changed since running npm install.
Run npm rebuild node-sass to build the binding for your current environment.

Can anyone helm me please?

For node-sass: this is usually caused by installing node modules when running a different version of node than you're currently running. For good measure, making sure the node version in .node_version is used, clearing out node_modules, and installing again should clear things up.

For npm run elasticsearch: elasticsearch isn't happy with running as root. Are you able to login or run the command as a different user?
edit: just noticed you're using sudo, you should be able to run the command without it

Heyy, thank you for responding.
I made sure i deleted the folder nodes-modules and run "npm install" to install the dependencies.
Also, I've tried running " npm run elasticsearch" without sudo and here's the error : `sana@sana:~/kibana$ npm run elasticsearch

esvm likely created some files that are now owned by root when we ran the command from earlier. Clearing out the esvm folder(will likely require sudo now), and re-running npm run elasticsearch should fix that.

I deleted the esvm folder, run "npm install" , permissed denied so I run "sudo npm install"
then run "npm run elasticsearch to get this error: https://pastebin.com/raw/zkE81m55
