Mavericks Problems

General Issues

First of all, please read Migration.

Updating MacPorts Base

Versions of MacPorts built on 10.8 or lower will fail to install packages on Mavericks because of a missing /usr/bin/gnutar. The solution to that problem is to re-install MacPorts using the installer for Mavericks. Do not create a symlink named /usr/bin/gnutar pointing to a different version of tar or a version of gnutar you installed using MacPorts or yourself.

Ensure you have at least the command line tools installed by running xcode-select --install from a Terminal. Make sure to also run this even if you have Xcode installed, because you might otherwise see an error message about MacPorts not being able to find Tcl with the next selfupdate.

Pre-Built Binary Packages

Pre-built binaries packages are available from our Mavericks buildbot kindly donated by MacOSForge.
