One of our requirements for an node.js Express based application being tested on our IBM i is for it to support Kerberos based authentication. Simple enough we thought - just find and install a suitable package (we are trying 'kerberos') with npm and use that. It wasn't quite that simple.

This package has a native module that requires compiling (node-gyp) which took this to a whole new level of needing to get the chroot and gcc compiler support installed. After much trial and error, trying 5733OPS option 3 then the more up-to-date scripts from ibmichroot, reading lots of posts here, updating gmake (to 4.2 as 4.1 had the virtual memory exhausted error), etc we have just about managed to get working.

The npm install of the kerberos package now completes but we receive the following error when trying to run a test script using it...

return process.dlopen(module, path._makeLong(filename));

Error: Module did not self-register.

I can see from Google that this is a fairly common issue and is normally down to a mismatch with the version of node, which shouldn't be the case here. Has anybody else here encountered this or know of a possible solution?
