Just got linux booted up for the first time (manjaro) and I'm trying to get my dev environment going, but npm i -g purescript is failing. I tried installing stack with pacman, and it got a little farther, but still failed.


What's the npm failure message?
Here's a video walkthrough for ubuntu. I suspect it will also apply to manjaro.

I figured out the issue. I had to symlink an new version of a file to the name of the old version
