Raspberry Pi Setup Error

Hi all,

Following the installation instructions for setup on my Pi running Raspbian, the command

curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/matrix-io/matrix-creator-quickstart/master/install.sh | sh

eventually turns out an error of:

node-pre-gyp ERR! Tried to download(404): https://storage.googleapis.com/grpc-precompiled-binaries/node/grpc/v1.1.2/node-v48-linux-arm.tar.gz 
node-pre-gyp ERR! Pre-built binaries not found for grpc@1.1.2 and node@6.7.0 (node-v48 ABI) (falling back to source compile with node-gyp) 

Any help would be much appreciated.


Sorry @bryce for the late response on this.

Is this still an issue for you?


I have a similar problem during the installation. It is not possible to install grpc.

These are the messages from npm-debug.log:

Hi mates. I wasn’t able to solve this one manually. I was having some other unrelated issues, so I ended up trying a fresh install on a different SD card,

The God of Mysterious Unsolvable Computer Errors then chose to leave me alone for the most part.

Good to hear it. Sometimes that’s all you can do, is start anew.
