#17322 closed defect (worksforme)

ddd still does not install under 10.5.4

Reported by: young_fish@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…

Component: ports Version: 1.6.0

Port: ddd

Description (last modified by mf2k (Frank Schima))

Installation (sudo port install ddd) will freeze at ---> configure. I saw, that issue has been addressed by one user (ticket #16016, which is closed), but I have the same issue and am just wandering if the workaround is the only solution (launching an x11 window)? I'd rather use only the terminal window than the x11 terminal as I have it customized. It would be great to have all commands be able to be run in the terminal window. I understand that this is not high priority. So I am just wandering if there is an other solution to be suggested? I am running this on an Xserve. No ~/.ddd/ folder has yet been created, so I cannot attache any log file.

Thanks Pelusa

You don't need to actually use X11, just have it running; since you're running 10.5, it should all happen automatically, if your DISPLAY is set to something like /tmp/launch-l4RvGv/:0, otherwise just try launching /Applications/Utilities/X11.app then try building ddd again. It appears that the build process for ddd queries the X11 server, hence this need to have it available.

This bug is quite old and ddd works fine for me on newer versions of OS X, closing.
