Meteor error after update Failed to load c++ bson extension, using pure JS version


#1

I have just updated meteor and i am getting this error. As a result,the error is not known to heroku and the app just fails but in my ubuntu installation,it works

=> Started proxy.                             
=> Started MongoDB.

=> Started your app.

Has anyone been able to solve this?.

I have the same issue:

$ meteor

I too have the same problem. Just as the OP, the apps works locally (ubuntu) but does not when I deploy to DigitalOcean using MUPX.

My version of meteor is 1.3.4.4

This issue is being tracked here:

TLDR: It looks like the cfs:gridfs package is the culprit.
