Ticket #17352 (closed defect: fixed)
scalc tries to install for wrong user ("bin")
|Reported by:||vakuumfluktuation@…||Owned by:||macports-tickets@…|
I just tried building "scalc" out of curiosity.
It through several errors like that:
chown: bin: Invalid argument
...seems it tries to set the user to bin before installing. Which doesn't exist!? - should it be there?
I did some grep'ing and then went through some files I thought relevant and changed the variables INSUSR_DEF and DEFINSUSR from bin to root (and did similar with the groups setting - from bin to admin). That allowed finishing the install.
Though I had another problem with already having a calc executable installed from the calc-port. Is that intended? Shouldn't/Couldn't the scalc-executable be named scalc instead of calc to avoid that?
PS: Full debug output of the build without changes is attached.
