Description

This is all I get if I try to activate it:

DEBUG: Executing org.macports.activate (evolution-data-server)
--->  Activating evolution-data-server 2.22.1_0+darwin_8
^C

Any idea what might be going on?

Just to be clear, I have done all the Usual Steps (sync, clean, deactivate the old, remove the receipt, rebuild from scratch, reinstall). It all seems to build and install just fine: it's the activation that gets hosed up.

Summary: evolution 2.22.1_0 fails to activate (or I don't see why it takes an hour to not complete)port activate keeps waiting for lock on file_map.db

Did you have another instance of port running in parallel? It may have been waiting for a lock on the /opt/local/var/macports/receipts/file_map.db.

If this is reproducible and you really have no other instance of port around, delete the file /opt/local/var/macports/receipts/file_map.db.lock. But normally this should happen automatically...

Hope that helps.

No response, and everyone else seems to always to have another instance running.
