El Capitan has introduced rootless feature that break lots of software. Search in this direction. Sorry I can’t help you more, I haven’t upgraded to El Capitan.

I am on El Capitan without any problems. @katawura you need to create or edit if you have it already your .bash_profile file in your user directory sudo nano ~/.bash_profile to add your paths to installed global node packages in there. Google for more info. google around mac bash_profile global node libraries or something along these lines
