System - Raspbian (Jessie):
sudo apt-get install npm
sudo npm install -g n
sudo n stable
Now I have two instances of node.
/usr/bin/node -v returns
/usr/local/bin/node -v returns
sudo apt-get purge nodejs has a laundry list of packages that will be removed. Is it safe to purge these dependencies? Is the instance in
/usr/local/bin self-contained or does it rely on these pre-existing packages? Will node red still work?
