I am unable to install aspell-0.60.5. Here is the error:

Replying to jochen@macports.org:

The response to 'which install-info' is:

/opt/local/sbin/install-info

My system is: Mac OS X 10.5.2

Hmm, something is iffy with your install-info...

So where's that install-info binary from? What's the output of

sudo port provides /opt/local/bin/install-info

What happen's if you move install-info out of the way? I.e.

sudo mv /opt/local/sbin/install-info /opt/local/sbin/install-info-away

and then try to install aspell?

install-info was from 'dpkg'. Since I didn't need that package, I uninstalled in completely. Now 'which install-info' returns: '/usr/bin/install-info', obviously not a macports port'

I tried cleaning and installing aspell again. Here is the output:

---> Fetching aspell ---> Verifying checksum(s) for aspell ---> Extracting aspell ---> Configuring aspell ---> Building aspell with target all ---> Staging aspell into destroot Error: Target org.macports.destroot returned: shell command "install-info /opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_ports_textproc_aspell/work/destroot/opt/local/share/info/aspell.info /opt/local/share/info/dir" returned error 1 Command output: install-info: /opt/local/share/info/dir: empty file

Well, then please remove this empty file

 /opt/local/share/info/dir

and run the install again.... install-info will regenerate a correct info-directory file

Please format your Terminal output you paste here in the trac as verbatim text, using three "{" and "}".

That last suggestion did the trick. Thanks.
