../deps/lcb/src/config_static.h:28:23: fatal error: sys/types.h: No such file or directory

Hi, I am trying to do npm install for couchbase nodejs sdk 3.2.

I am using gcc 6.1.0 with node 12. But i keep getting this error:

prebuild-install WARN install tunneling socket could not be established, statusCode=407

How can i fix this ?

It sounds like you have some kind of minimized Linux distro, which likely isn’t in our compatibility list. sys/types.h is part of the OS distribution in any case where you’d be building software. This is where it comes from in Ubuntu:

We provide prebuilds for most of the compatible/supported platforms. Since yours went to build, it may not be one of those.

To fix it, can you use a listed, compatible Linux distro? Or if you think you are, check that the developer tools are installed?
