I think I uninstalled everything correctly...
sudo apt-get --purge remove node
sudo apt-get --purge remove nodejs
sudo apt-get --purge remove node.js
But got this error when installing latest node as recommended:
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup6.x | sudo -E bash -_
## Installing the NodeSource Node.js v6.x repo...
## You appear to be running on ARMv6 hardware. Unfortunately this is not currently supported by the NodeSource Linux distributions. Please use the 'linux-armv6l' binary tarballs available directly from nodejs.org for Node.js v4 and later.
I have downloaded what I think is the correct file to my Pi, but haven't a clue how to install it:
EDIT!! OK, I found some directions on Google and edited them to match the "proper?" version... I ran these instructions... but still not really understanding what I just did
tar -xvf node-v6.9.1-linux-armv6l.tar.gz
sudo cp -R * /usr/local/
Final EDIT!! Well, I initially had issues with the above commands... as I had not ran them one after another, thus the last one was not in the proper directory (as it would have been if all were ran sequentially)... so I re-ran the commands as listed above and am now going through the rest of the NPM, ONOFF and Blynk library install... we will see if this all works out in the end
