*Solved*[Install problem]


#1

Hello,

I just tried to install meteor

$ curl https://install.meteor.com/ | sh

But there is a 403 error on OS X El Captain

So i used :
$ curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/tjmonsi/stable-meteor-install/master/meteorInstall.sh | /bin/sh

$ meteor update

So my project is running the latest available version

But for one of my project using heroku buildpack when i try to git push on heroku, heroku is trying to update the meteor build, so i get the following error.

-----> Node.js app detected
-----> Installing meteor

So fresh install on my mac doesn’t work, but i found a workaround.

This is not the same on heroic…

So i might be able to do a buildpack for the older version, replacing the dynamic one to a static one (but this is not optimal at all)

After following the instruction for another bug package, i found that meteor version numbering not always consistent (sometime using “dots”, and sometimes “underscore”, maybe using underscore when this is a patch break the build system on heroku)

So here are my question :

  • When the next meteor release will be released ?
  • Will the installation script and update script use the same process ?
  • Why does it works when i install an old version and then update, instead of using the official script ?
  • What is the real problem ?
  • Is this a bug or a feature ? :slight_smile:
  • I assume this is 2 different bugs… :wink:
  • Is this a related hosting or core bug ?

How the meteor community can help mdg to fix this problem ?

I think we had a faulty release go out, but it has been rolled back now, so installation should work as usual. Can anyone confirm?


#5

I don’t want to be the QA person who pushed the faulty release into the wild

  • The local installation is now working.
  • Git push heroku master is working as well

Seems that everything is working :sunny:

Well done guys :wink:
