The latest version of Node was segfaulting on my Linode. Here’s how to install a specific version.

I want Node 0.5.0, the latest NPM and CoffeeScript 1.0.1.

NodeJS 0.5.0 From a Tag

git clone https://github.com/joyent/node.git
cd node
git checkout "v0.5.0"
export JOBS=2 # optional, sets number of parallel commands.
./configure
make
make install

Latest NPM

curl http://npmjs.org/install.sh | sh

CoffeeScript 1.0.1

npm config set registry http://registry.npmjs.org
npm install -g coffee-script@1.0.1
