Ticket #18996 (closed defect: invalid)
.profile not created & port command not found on leopard install
|Reported by:||rmueller@…||Owned by:||macports-tickets@…|
I am having trouble with my port install. Everything seemed to go smoothly: I downloaded and ran the .dmg for leopard and the installed claimed to be successful. When I go to run port, however, it seems to be missing. i.e.
[echidna:~] rmueller% sudo port -d selfupdate
sudo: port: command not found
[echidna:~] rmueller% man port
No manual entry for port
I have reviewed the online documentation enough to realize that my install is a bit "off." For one, I don't have a .profile created. Instead, I only see a .macports directory. (I don't have a .bash_login or .bash_profile either.)
I have macfuse installed with winXP pro., and I'm suspicious of this interfering with other programs. Could it have impacted this install too?
Can someone please help me figure out what I'm missing?
I'm not sure if this is a bug or not (high probability of user error), but since I got the "install successful" thumbs up, I'm thinking it may be a bug...?
