#14313 closed defect (fixed)

openmotif's (very different) periodic command overrides OS X

Reported by: bcbarnes@… Owned by: ghosthound

Description

as per http://lists.macosforge.org/pipermail/macports-users/2008-February/008960.html and replies,

openmotif install /opt/local/bin/periodic which is very different from /usr/sbin/periodic . Due to the default macports $PATH, this command becomes the system wide default. The openmotif command should possibly be renamed; maybe upstream, maybe by macports?

I'm just a user who wants normal system functionality ;)

note, openmotif currently has nomaintainer. http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/browser/trunk/dports/x11/openMotif/Portfile
