Not having issues compiling project. When I truffle migrate I receive this error:

Using network 'development'.

at process._tickCallback (internal/process/next_tick.js:109:7)

Here is my Node contract (MetaCoin is Ownable):

pragma solidity ^0.4.4;
import "./Relay.sol";
import "./MetaCoin.sol";

contract Node is MetaCoin {

uint public fee;
address public owner;
address[] public publicRelays;

  function Node() {
    owner = msg.sender;
    fee = 10;

  function createRelay () returns (address){
    address relay = new Relay();
    return relay;

Not sure what the issue is. Any help in the right direction would be great. Using Truffle v3.2.1.

Thank you.

Since you import MetaCoin.sol in Node.sol, and the Node contract inherits from MetaCoin, that means Node.sol includes all the MetaCoin.sol code. This means you need to also link ConvertLib to Node.

The solution is to change this line in your migration:

deployer.link(ConvertLib, MetaCoin)

To this:

deployer.link(ConvertLib, [MetaCoin, Node])

So, in English: "Link Convertlib to MetaCoin and Node."
