Error after following 'getting started' with gracefull-fs

after the downloading latest node.js and giving the command npm install -g athom-clio the following warning

npm WARN deprecated graceful-fs@3.0.8: graceful-fs v3.0.0 and before will fail on node releases >= v7.0. Please update to graceful-fs@^4.0.0 as soon as possible. Use 'npm ls graceful-fs' to find it in the tree.

Entering; 'athom login' gives me the following error;

(node:6556) fs: re-evaluating native module sources is not supported. If you are using the graceful-fs module, please update it to a more recent version.

When I update to Gracefull-fs 4.1.4 I get the same error, anyone a idea whats going wrong?


  • homey and its dependencies run on node 4.4.2 not the latest.

    you could also reinstall athom-cli 

    npm uninstall -g athom-cli
     npm install -g athom-cli
  • thanx, going to install 4.4.2 and try again. 
    maybe something to put into the 'getting started' part?
  • that worked like a charm!
    still the deprecated error for gracefull, but I'm now logged in! THANX!
