Ticket #17898 (closed defect: fixed)
readline installation failing
|Reported by:||rob@…||Owned by:||macports-tickets@…|
I am trying to install couchdb using macports (haven't used macports before - installed yesterday, version 1.700). I have been getting hung up on:
$ sudo port install couchdb +server Password: ---> Fetching readline ---> Attempting to fetch readline-5.2.tar.gz from ftp://ftp.cwru.edu/pub/bash/
I have also tried to install readline directly and it still hangs: $ sudo port install readline Password: ---> Fetching readline ---> Attempting to fetch readline-5.2.tar.gz from ftp://ftp.cwru.edu/pub/bash/
I have been trying this since yesterday afternoon.
I see some messages that talk about --with-readline and --without-readline. Is the answer here somewhere? I didn't want to just guess what to do with these, but can't find the actual answer.
On my system, I see: /opt/local/var/macports/distfiles/readline/readline-5.2.tar.gz.TMP (but since it is hanging, never finishes)
I searched my entire hard drive for readline and see several locations...
Any ideas how I can resolve this?
- Status changed from new to closed
- Resolution set to fixed
- Port set to readline
