Kibana Source Installation gives Npm Error


(Fareeha Naaz) #1

Hi!

i was working on kibana source installation and i went through the following steps:
Install git from yum
I installed Node.Js from https://nodejs.org/download/release/latest/
3.git clone https://github.com/elastic/kibana.git kibana
Installed NVM from curl -o- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/creationix/nvm/v0.33.2/install.sh | bash
nvm install "$(cat .node-version)"
npm install
npm run elasticsearch
and then i got npm errors

npm run elasticsearch

i have come up with 3 suggestion after searching nearly 20 different links, 1) deleting esvm dir 2) degarding node version and 3) running "npm install grunt -keep alive --save-dev, but neither of these helped me!


(Brandon Kobel) #2

@FareehaNaaz do you have java installed and in your PATH as well? If you run java -version what do you see?


(Fareeha Naaz) #3

$ java -version
java version "1.8.0_102"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_102-b14)
Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 25.102-b14, mixed mode)


(Brandon Kobel) #4

@FareehaNaaz you need to have your current working directory set to kibana (cd kibana) before running:

nvm install "$(cat .node-version)"
npm install
npm run elasticsearch

(Fareeha Naaz) #5

yeah i did the same


(Brandon Kobel) #6

@FareehaNaaz the following error alludes to you having your current working directory at "/root"

npm ERR! enoent ENOENT: no such file or directory, open '/root/package.json'

did you git clone the source into "/root" I'm thinking it put it in "/root/kibana"

@FareehaNaaz do you have any pending changes? If you run git status what do you get?


(Fareeha Naaz) #9

i get this:

git status

On branch master
Changed but not updated:
(use "git add ..." to update what will be committed)
(use "git checkout -- ..." to discard changes in working directory)

modified:   package.json

Untracked files:
(use "git add ..." to include in what will be committed)

npm

no changes added to commit (use "git add" and/or "git commit -a")


(Brandon Kobel) #10

Did you intend to make changes to the package.json? It'd be helpful for you to undo your changes and try again. If you run git checkout . it should reset the changes that you made.


(Fareeha Naaz) #11

i havnt made any changes, but still i gave it a try and here is the o/p

git checkout

M package.json
[root@pdc-prd-dbware36 KIBANA]# npm run elasticsearch

It looks like your node version switched back to v4.4.0, nvm use/nvm install isn't persistent across multiple terminals, you'll want to run nvm use "$(cat .node-version)" every-time that you open up a new terminal or investigate using (avn)[https://www.npmjs.com/package/avn] to do so automatically.

Additionally, please be certain that you ran "git checkout ." and it doesn't show the package.json as modified when you run "git status", i'm afraid there are still pending changes there based on:

M	package.json

that M to the left generally means "Modified"


(Fareeha Naaz) #13

i did follow these steps and then here is what i get:

I'm seeing that same error, saying you can't run Elasticsearch as root. Have you tried creating another user, logging in as that user and then trying to run npm run elasticsearch?


(Fareeha Naaz) #17

yes created a user with root permissions and then "npm run elasticsearch", still i get the same errors.


(Brandon Kobel) #18

@FareehaNaaz

Elasticsearch is calling the native Linux syscall geteuid to determine if the user is root. Are you running the command using sudo? That will trigger that check as well.


(Fareeha Naaz) #19

i did try by logging as my new user/ switching to my new user before running npm and also by giving sudo but all give the same error, here are my userid, group details:

id sraha

uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root),10(wheel)


(Brandon Kobel) #20

@FareehaNaaz I'm not following, the uid and gid of that user appear to be root, so Elasticsearch is going to think that you're root.
