I installed the libcouchbase using brew.

Is this a bug?

You should install libcouchbase first

If you are using homebrew, it is as simple as

brew install libcouchbase

Otherwise, download latest tarball and do

./configure && make && sudo make install

I installed libcouchbase.

My problem occurs when i try to install couchbase module.

npm install couchbase

I tried the same steps on a ubuntu machine and was successful.

me too. this is a regression that occurred this morning when I went back to work on the product. It seems like there was an update to the nodejs code or one of its dependencies.

i am on mac osx. i previously could install and run couchbase locally for development. this morning I started getting code 16 network errors and have been slowly building my environment back up… this is the step that’s stuck.

pretty annoying, and please take this report seriously: there is a regression in the nodejs library.

this is a regression, but this github report was a successful workaround for me:

This works for me too. But I don’t know how to install couchnode modules on my node.js app on a different directory?
