How To Install Node.js 0.10.33 On Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 12.04 And Derivative Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Node.js is an open-source development platform built on Chrome’s JavaScript run-time, for creating network applications. It uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices. Also worth mentioning, the npm (NoteJS package manager) is integrated in the nodejs package.

The latest version available is Node.js 0.10.33, which comes with the below changes:

  • openssl: Update to 1.0.1j (Addressing multiple CVEs)
  • uv: Update to v0.10.29
  • child_process: properly support optional args (cjihrig)
  • crypto: Disable autonegotiation for SSLv2/3 by default

    Nice article, however instructions seem to be incomplete. I’ve just installed a fresh Ubuntu 12.04 (64bit) server. Done an apt-get update; apt-get upgrade.

    When I try :-
    john@vm483:~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chris-lea/node.js
    I get :-
    sudo: add-apt-repository: command not found

    Looks like it’s missing some steps to install the personal package archive.
