SAFE Drive - help with testing


OK, I tried git clone of safenetworkjs and I got some warrning and errors

tomas@tomas-Lenovo-IdeaPad-Z510:~$ git clone
Cloning into ‘safenetworkjs’…

Resolving deltas: 100% (373/373), done.
tomas@tomas-Lenovo-IdeaPad-Z510:~$ cd safenetworkjs

tomas@tomas-Lenovo-IdeaPad-Z510:~/safenetworkjs$ npm install
npm WARN deprecated graceful-fs@3.0.11: please upgrade to graceful-fs 4 for compatibility with current and future versions of Node.js

But graceful-fs is in latest version:

tomas@tomas-Lenovo-IdeaPad-Z510:~/safenetworkjs$ dpkg -l | grep graceful-fs
ii node-graceful-fs 4.1.11-1 all drop-in replacement improving the Node.js fs module

And errors:

Do you want npm-debug.log ?


I’m not clever enough to interpret these logs, but think you may not have the prerequisites installed.

Can you tell me the OS / version you are using, and confirm you have the prerequisites according to the safenetwork-fuse instructions on github, and the Maidsafe tutorial here.

If you can’t see the problem, I suggest you try working through that tutorial, because that should ensure you have what is needed.

Thanks for helping out!


I checked the points from pre-requisites and all tools are installed.

git is in version (1:2.17.1-1ubuntu0.4).
nodejs in version (8.10.0~dfsg-2ubuntu0.4).
build-essential in version (12.4ubuntu1).
libgconf-2-4 in version (3.2.6-4ubuntu1).

OS Version is Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS

I will try it again in the next few days. Thank you for your help.


Looks good :slight_smile:

That should be good for the npm install so let me know how that goes now.

To try the drive you also need the dependencies here:

And then back to here

Good luck.
