Arch Killing long running node/npm processes before finishing

hello all,

when i run certian longer processes in node.js/npm, like an update ($ npm update -g) or to search for an npm package ($ npm search elm), it starts the process on my Pine64 A64+ w/ 2 GB board, but then half- or even three-quarters of the way through, it just kills the process before it completes; particularly, i noticed, when it's waiting for info to come back across the 'net through the ethernet port, with —


then it just gives me the command prompt again, process never completes. this happens no matter how many times i re-try it.

is there anyway to change a setting, somewhere, that will extend the amount of time before these processes are killed? any help would be much appreciated, please. thank you and advance.

Linux doesn't normally kill processes that run long. Try "dmesg | tail" after the process is killed to see if something like oom is killing it.
