After some research I’ve found out what’s up
the error is produced by an npm package called NetRoute
it’s used to obtain data about your connection using
this file is only Ever generated when you establish an internet connection, so the assertion to check if you can succesfully read the file fails when you boot up with no internet, however it will not fail if you just disconnect from your WiFi network afterwards
I fixed my local copy by commenting the Assertion which is in line 59 of the file
I became a contributor to the project, however I’m not sure how to contribute this fix to MeteorJS since its not technically a meteor issue, but a NetRoute issue.
Hope it helps someone, because I could’ve certainly used this information
@ibox there’s your explanation, my friend
