So… you’re a fucking muppet when it comes down to node, doing shit in the terminal, gems and so on and you have that ‘Running “watch” task Waiting…Bus error: 10′ error coming up when trying to run grunt watch for the first time.

As I don’t have a clue about all this, I’m gonna make this blog post a short one.

A downgrade or upgrade of node seems to do the trick for most people, so here’s what I did to resolve the issue, without knowing much wtf I was doing. By the way, I went with the upgrade.

Clear NPM’s cache with:

sudo npm cache clean -f

Install the node version management (refered to as n) with:

sudo npm install -g n

Install latest stable NodeJS version with:

sudo n stable

or as I like to refer it as:

Go-go gadget node

Relaunch your grunt task, it should work.
If it doesn’t, I’ve made it pretty clear I wasn’t the guy to ask, haven’t I.

So long.

    Works, but ruined the npm is on my Mac’s bash. Fixed that after re-installing node.js. This time, the bus 10 error did not occur.
