|Should I use brew or pip for installing matplotlib?|
Since you need compile many of these packages, it is not the simplest task
on the Mac. I would recommend to use a distribution like Anaconda. It is
free, comes with all the things you need and has a simple installer. It
will save you a lot of hassle because all components work together.

|"The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package...". Is it possible to install Node.js (v0.10.15) on Windows XP?|
So, I figured out how to install it :)
I did a double click on node-v0.10.15-x86.msi file in order to install
Node. And that caused an error.
.msi files shouldn't be installed that way. I found a solution on this page
So my steps in Windows command line. I pointed a directory where to unpack
C:>msiexec /a "C:DownloadsProgramsNode.js
ode-v0.10.15-x86.msi" /qb TARGETDIR="C:Program Files
And now it works. It unpacked Node.js and all its dependencies to C:Program
odejs. I just added the directory to PATH.
I'm glad I can use Node on Windows. Working under Ubuntu is a pain.

|Installing a specific Node version in ubuntu|
Chris Lea has 0.8.23 in his ppa repo.
This package let you add a repository to apt-get: (You can also do this

Add Chris Lea's repository:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:chris-lea/node.js-legacy
sudo apt-get update

I think (feel free to edit) the version number is optional if you only add
node.js-legacy. If you add both legacy and ppa/chris-lea/node.js you most
likely need to add the version.
|Node.js - installing johnny five library on windows|
I am not sure about your specific error but I had a lot of different
node-gyp related errors with npm install on windows until I uninstalled all
Visual Studio products and followed the instructions on
https://github.com/TooTallNate/node-gyp to a T. That includes specifically
Visual Studio 2010 (not 2012 which didn't work), the SDK, and the SDK
update. After I followed those steps exactly I stopped getting errors
(including a successful test installation of Johnny Five a few minutes ago.
Maybe worth a try if you haven't followed these steps already.

sudo gem install jquery-rails is probably using your system's built-in Ruby

With RVM, get rid of the sudo and it'll use RVM instead:

|Error installing Ruby on Rails 4.0.0 - error compiling atomic_reference.c|
I had this exact same problem today. I was able to fix it, but I'm not
entirely sure what caused the problem initially, or even how I solved it.
What I do know is it finally worked after I updated ruby gems to the latest
version, instead of getting version 2.0.0 as the tutorial suggests.
gem update --system 2.0.0
Try that and let me know if it helps.

UPDATE 2015.03.07: as Chords indicated in a comment above it may be
necessary to remove the folder entirely. (Although setting the correct
permissions and groups may be an equivalent measure.)
|Brew disabled by merge conflicts|
chmod -R 777 is extremely bad for security. This makes every file and
directory under it world readable writable and executable meaning everybody
can do what they like with it.
At the very most directories should have permissions of 775 - better 755
and files should either be 664 or 644 unless they are executable files as
exists in /usr/local/bin in which case they should be 755 again.
The recursive change to /usr/local/ means that every file listed in the
status / commit had permission changes to it which is why brew has
complained. Might not look like much but it means the world to git and the
security of your system.
The only way to get this back is to reset the permissions on each file /
directory under /usr/local/ and then remove your commit entirely with git
reset --hard origin/ma
|Can't figure out why brew version of python is not being used|
You didn't link python properly. If you type brew install python on your
terminal, it may output as Warning: python-2.7.5 already installed, it's
just not linked.
If then, you need to link your python install by typing brew link python.
If you face any conflict because of some earlier site-packages, just type
as brew link --overwrite python.
Now it should work fine.
|Can not install opencv using brew or make on mac osx|
I have recently encountered a similar problem building OpenCV using brew.
The central issue was that OpenCV would not build properly when building
against ffmpeg (it will try to do this if ffmpeg is also installed.)
As suggested here, the problem can be resolved by using the following brew
command to build OpenCV, which forces an alternative version of the build
environment (one of the top troubleshooting suggestions for brew):
brew install opencv --env=std
Hope this works for you too!

select dylib files as you need (I select all for simplicity).

problem is. Bundler or a component it calls does not properly handle
directory names with spaces in them. In my case it was .../Data RAID/...
that caused the problem. Once I moved the project to a different drive
where there would be no spaces in the path, everything worked fine. It
appears it may be only the location of the gems that are the issue. In an
earlier attempt, I created a project where the gems weren't located in a
path containing spaces, but the project was. It didn't have any problems as
far as I went with it. Notice also that the gem install atomic was

I was attempting to connect to a SQL Server instance where case-sensitivity
is enforced. The script files provided with DNN 7.00.06 have a number of
inconsistencies in regards to case. An example is the parameter @ParentId,
which is declared @ParentID. I was not permitted to alter the settings on
the remote SQL Server so I ended up installing a local SQL Express (with
case-sensitivity off) as a work-around.
I hope my experience helps if anyone else comes across this issue.

You get a Generic document when no specific document is at that position in
