Error while linking app to Splunk directory on Putty- How can this be solved?

Hi,

I am creating a React app for Splunk on a Putty terminal. I am following the following tutorial:
https://splunkui.splunk.com/Create/AppTutorial

However, I am unable to build the output directory needed to be symlinked into Splunk's application directory with the command: 
yarn run link:app

I have set the $SPLUNK_HOME environmental variable to /opt/splunk but everytime I run the yarn run link:app command, I keep getting the following error:

node: error while loading shared libraries: libcrypto.so.1.0.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


How can this be solved please? 


Thanks,

Ok I have a better solution. If you want to use Splunk Create as the Splunk user, and avoid using the Splunk provided NodeJS v8 runtime, remove the Splunk bin from your terminal path first.

export PATH=$(echo $PATH | sed -s 's+/opt/splunk/bin:++')
node -v

 This worked for me to develop as my Splunk user.

I am having the same issue and can point you in the right direction.

If you are logged in as the Splunk user, it seems you get that error whenever you try run node. You can confirm this by running "which node" and you will see it's Splunk's.

The workaround I'm using, is I develop my Splunk UI app as another OS user where node works. I also just created the symlink manually because my environment is a little different.
