I am trying to move node js application from windows machine to linux machine for QA environment and I am having trouble installing couchbase module on linux machine.

It ran fine on windows machine but I've tried this install on 4 different linux machine and I get this error message when I run

npm install couchbase --no-bin-links

I am on precise32 with vagrant for this logs.

 couchbase@2.1.3 install /vagrant/MBO 2122016/node_modules/couchbase
 prebuild --install
