  1. I have a similar issue with create-react-app. Any idea how to fix the problem? (except changing computer… 🙂 )

  2. Hi,

    Unfortunately, I am getting the same error when running Webpack on Node 9.5.0 on Debian 9 stretch. Could you help me with debugging this issue?

    Webpack: 3.7.1
    npm: 5.6.0
    Node: 9.5.0
    Debian: 9.3.0

    My command:

    ./node_modules/webpack/bin/webpack.js -p --progress


    Error: write EPIPE
