Ticket #29505 (closed defect: fixed)
Can't deactivate port with deactivated dependent
|Reported by:||roger@…||Owned by:||macports-tickets@…|
I want to deactivate the ruby port. The swig-ruby port depends on it, so I deactivate swig-ruby. When I try to deactivate ruby, I'm told:
Unable to uninstall/deactivate ruby @1.8.7-p334_0+thread_hooks, the following ports depend on it: ---> swig-ruby @2.0.3_0
So, I must uninstall a deactivated port in order to deactivate one it depends upon.
The semantics for deactivate should be the same as for uninstall, it seems to me.
