Can't install npm package serialport

  • I have an Omega 2+ with an SD card setup with an overlay and a 1 gig swap file set up.

    when I try to run npm install serialport, I get the following:

    FATAL ERROR: CALL_AND_RETRY_LAST Allocation failed - process out of memory

    I get the same thing without a swap file, a 256 mb swap file as well. I have 32gig free on the sd card.

    Any suggestions?


  • @Bryan-French, you must create a swap partition un usb, or sd...

  • This post is deleted!

  • @alejandro-neujovics I had created one. I've since updated the firmware to 3.2 b218 and my overlay and swap page isn't working any more. Trying to set it up again, but it seems the mounting of the external devices has changed so the instructions don't match any more. I seem have the overlay set up again, but now I can't set up a swap page on the overlay per the instructions for that, so I'm having trouble increasing the memory.

  • @Bryan-French , after update new firmaware, of course i did need to create again, extended RAM, SWAP, and extra space (overlay), but i did use the old commands..
