Packager not loading on Linux


Does anybody knows why when running the packager, it hangs on

r$ npm start --verbose
npm info it worked if it ends with ok
npm verb cli [ ‘/usr/bin/nodejs’, ‘/usr/bin/npm’, ‘start’, ‘–verbose’ ]
npm info using npm@4.2.0
npm info using node@v7.10.1
npm verb run-script [ ‘prestart’, ‘start’, ‘poststart’ ]
npm info lifecycle Reader@0.0.1~prestart: Reader@0.0.1
npm info lifecycle Reader@0.0.1~start: Reader@0.0.1

Reader@0.0.1 start /home/kimi/test/ExpoApp
react-native-scripts start

1:38:06 PM: Starting packager…

And…1/ 20 / 30 minutes later it’s still there…


Ok. It was fixed by runnig

sudo sysctl -w fs.inotify.max_user_watches=10000

before “npm start”
