running npm install on samba share
I’m attempting to run
npm install on a mounted samba share (FreeNAS). The first time I was able to install webpack but all subsequent attempts to install any package fail with
EACCES: permission denied, chown errors on package.json files in the node_modules directory. (I am able to successfully install packages to normal (non mounted) directories in the file system).
As a regular user I’m able to read and write to the share. However I’m not able to run
chown . Why does
npm install try to run chown? How can I successfully install packages?
