Ticket #30071 (closed defect: duplicate)
dbus cannot install without root privileges

Description (last modified by macsforever2000@…) (diff)
I have installed macports without root privileges by configuring it with "--with-no-root-privileges --with-install-user=$USER". This is an important use case; a number of developers at my company use macports this way (no root access).
I've found that a large number of useful packages depend on dbus (e.g. qt4-mac), which fails to install without root privileges:
---> Activating dbus @1.4.12_0 Error: Target org.macports.activate returned: error copying "/Users/etl/macports/var/macports/software/dbus/1.4.12_0/Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist" to "/Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist": permission denied Error: Failed to install dbus
Could you please make the dbus port somehow install when macports is not configured for root access? Something like qt4-mac is just a library; it shouldn't need administrator privileges to be installed. Similarly, pretty much every app from the GNOME desktop depends on dbus.
