build node and npm on linux from git repo
First installs the git and other build tool, then checkout node repository from github. cd into the node folder, and checkout the version of git that you want to install, the version number for the latest stable version can be found from the nodejs.org, then run the configure and make and install.
sudo yum install git gcc-c++ make openssl-devel java-1.7.0-openjdk-devel git clone git://github.com/joyent/node.git cd node git checkout v0.10.29 ./configure make sudo make install
After the node is stalled, it’s usually installed in /usr/local/bin/node, and you might run into issue where the node command is not found when installing the npm because npm installs as nobody so it won’t look into the folder /usr/local/bin/ for node. A remedy for this is to make a symbolic link in /usr/bin/node
which node ln -s /usr/local/bin/node /usr/bin/node
Go back to the home directory, git clone the npm repo from github, cd into the npm directory and make install.
cd git clone https://github.com/isaacs/npm.git cd npm sudo make install
