Not able to install meteor. Curl(18) problem


#1

Hi guys,

I was setting up my second machine for meteor development today. But when I tried to install meteor on it following error comes up. I tried to install using creating install script as well but still it’s not working.

What should I do now? Is there any other way to install it and get it to work?

Thanks in advance!

For me also not working. Please inform if you got any solution.

No bro. I downloaded manually the tar.gz meteor file using download manager. Also edited script to work locally to install it but I’m not able to install it as of now. And it seems, there is no tutorial anywhere where I can see how to install meteor manually and edit all those global variables.

But the problem behind this, is the internet connection. Now my internet is quite fast, but I guess it has high ping and meteor server connection is breaking up frequently.

This seems like it might be a geographical problem with the new CDN.

See here: https://github.com/meteor/meteor/issues/6960

(and please post your geographic location/country in the issue if you’re having problems!)
