Setup script fails



  • Hello,

    running the default install script on PI3 with latest Raspberry OS, I only get following:

    npm WARN deprecated time-grunt@2.0.0: Deprecated because Grunt is practically unmaintained. Move on to something better. This package will continue to work with Grunt v1, but it will not receive any updates.

  • after checking here for similar issue, I used bigger desktop image (2019-07-10-raspbian-buster.zip) . Still issue as below, what can I do do complete install?

  • @Joern I think npm is downlevel

    Do

    sudo npm i -g npm
    

    To install the latest system wide

    Then redo the npm install in the MagicMirror folder



  • I have the exact same issue and tried countless installs and re-installs without any success. I installed it on another pi a few days ago without any issues, but have been struggling to get it going on my Pi3 for the last 2 days and it is driving me nuts.

    I tried the above recommendation also without any luck.



  • @qtin can u tell us the difference between the two pi devices?



  • @sdetweil

    Hi Sam

    Thanks for the response. There are no differences other than hardware. I used the exact same Raspbian (NOOBS) image, installed from scratch and followed the same steps.
    Only difference is that I installed it on the Pi2 earlier last week, and on the Pi3 a few days later.

    I will get another SD Card and try it again on the Pi2 and see if it has the same issue now.



  • @qtin thanks…

    can u do a

    uname -a
    

    on each for me



  • @sdetweil , I’ve checked both Pi2 and Pi3 and they both return the following - exactly the same:

    pi@raspberrypi:~ $ uname -a
    Linux raspberrypi 4.19.50-v7+ #896 SMP Thu Jun 20 16:11:44 BST 2019 armv7l GNU/Linux
    
    


  • Just some random thoughts:
    Are the update/install servers are the same for the 2 RPis?
    /etc/apt??? (not sure about the exact path…) is the location of the files that defines the update servers.

    Do they gave the same internet access? No problem accessing any website on the problematic one?



  • @tcsabina

    Thanks for the suggestion but I managed to get it to work with help from @sdetweil on my other forum post.

    Steps to follow are as follow:

    sudo npm i -g npm
    
    cd MagicMirror
    
    1. (Inside the MagicMirror directory)
    rm -rf node_modules/
    
    1. (Inside the MagicMirror directory)
    npm install
    

    All done 🙂
