Installation of Node.js

Build Node.js by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=/usr                  \
            --shared-cares                 \
            --shared-libuv                 \
            --shared-nghttp2               \
            --shared-openssl               \
            --shared-zlib                  \
            --with-intl=system-icu         &&
make

To test the results, issue: make check. One test, test-dns, is known to fail.

Now, as the root user:

make install &&
ln -sf node /usr/share/doc/node-12.13.1

Command Explanations

--with-intl=system-icu: use the system version of icu. Other values are full-icu (to build a local, full icu library) and small-icu (to to build a local, minimal icu library).

--shared-{cares,libuv,nghttp2,openssl,zlib}: use the system installed libraries instead of local copies.

--without-npm: do not build npm (use if you'd like to build a separate npm later).

--shared-http-parser: use the system installed library instead of a local copy.
