Issue creating worker with node

I have an issue starting a worker with my new project: GitHub - Collaborative-IoT/Lancelot: Voice server for Collaborative-IoT audio chat.

The issue occurs:Lancelot/startMediasoup.ts at master · Collaborative-IoT/Lancelot · GitHub

Here is the issue output: `

Things tried?

1.I made sure I have the requirements listed in the documentation
2.Deleted/Undeleted the node_modules folder of my project to reinstall the lib.
3.Navigated to C:\Users\imkxr\Repos\Collaborative\Lancelot\node_modules\mediasoup\node_modules and ran npm install.

The output of 3: `

Questions and Additional

Is there anything else to check for worker failure?

It seems you have the global Node.js make package installed, which collides with MinGW/GNU make. Try npm uninstall -g make

Thanks for the insight, after removing the node.js make globally I have gotten the following from repeating step 3 of the section “things tried”.

Did you read and follow all instructions here top to bottom?: mediasoup :: Installation

It seems that you don’t have correct Make version installed.

Thanks for your help! Instead of running it locally on my windows machine I just placed it in a docker container with alpine which has build essentials.
