MacPorts-1.6.0-10.4-Tiger.dmg - install failure

Reported by: brandon@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: base Version: 1.6.0
Keywords: installation install freeze failure Cc:


I have a fairly clean installation of OS X 10.4.11 on a Macbook. I tried to install MacPorts-1.6.0-10.4-Tiger.dmg but near the end of the install, it freezes at the message "running macports installer script".

On doing an uninstall, I found that there were files in /opt/local/, but no folder /Applications/MacPorts/ or /Library/Tcl/macports1.0/ and nothing at /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.macports.*

I had pretty much the same problem with the Leopard version. The installer did not actually freeze though, if you stick around long enough you should eventually get an error message saying that installation failed. I had the exact same files & dirs missing as you. My guess is that it is simply a timeout or probably a temporary name resolution error during a selfupdate. You might want retry installing a few times, it helped in my case..

Cheers, Niels

Can't do anything about this without more information. If it happens with 1.7, grab the installer log.
