Server mode on Gentoo: TypeError in logger.js

  • Hi all,

    I’ve tried to perform a fresh install of MM2 on a Gentoo system, intended to run as a headless server system. There was no previous working installation of MM2 on that system - in fact, this is my very first installation of MM2. I’m using the Node.js version supplied via the Gentoo package management system portage, which is

    *  net-libs/nodejs
          Latest version available: 14.4.0
          Latest version installed: 14.4.0
          Size of files: 32232 KiB
          Description:   A JavaScript runtime built on Chrome's V8 JavaScript engine
          License:       Apache-1.1 Apache-2.0 BSD BSD-2 MIT

    Other than that, I’ve followed the steps in the installation instructions exactly. Running the application with npm run start via a SSH connection with X11 tunneling works (slow, but that was to be expected), so there’s nothing obviously wrong with the config or the installation. Now I want to use the server-only feature, which does not work:

    ~/MagicMirror $ npm run server
    > magicmirror@2.12.0 server /home/magicmirror/MagicMirror
    > node ./serveronly
    		timeStamp:, console)

    Is this a bug I should report or is there something else I’m missing?


  • …commenting out the offending line in logger.js appears to resolve the issue, and I can find no other reference to timeStamp - is this line needed for anything…?
