Ticket #13707 (new defect)
MacPorts installer should warn if /opt is not a directory
|Reported by:||martin.streicher@…||Owned by:||macports-tickets@…|
My machine had a symbolic link named /opt, which pointed to a non-existent directory named /private/opt. When I tried to install MacPorts, the preflight script failed to create /opt and so the install failed. Perhaps an error message would be helpful, if /opt wasn't a true directory.
