I changed the title slightly
I forked the sysinfo plugin to try to add some extra display functionality.
On installation of my forked github version I got errors. I used the How to install a plugin from github using npm or git.
Of course I expected my forked version to be faulty but the original should work fine, I thought.
So then I tried to install the default github version from here: https://github.com/pimatic/pimatic-sysinfo
So I went inside node-modules and did a
git clone https://github.com/pimatic/pimatic-sysinfo, followed by a
cd pimatic-sysinfo, followed by a
sudo npm install.
I got make errors which basically came down to this:
gyp ERR! build error gyp ERR! stack Error: `make` failed with exit code: 2 gyp ERR! stack at ChildProcess.onExit (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/npm/node_modules/node-gyp/lib/build.js:276:23) gyp ERR! stack at emitTwo (events.js:87:13) gyp ERR! stack at ChildProcess.emit (events.js:172:7) gyp ERR! stack at Process.ChildProcess._handle.onexit (internal/child_process.js:200:12) gyp ERR!

What am I doing wrong or what is wrong?
