#17384 closed defect (invalid)

installation failure

Reported by: sgoddar1@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.6.0
Keywords: Cc:
Port: rpm


I am getting systematic failure to install with most packages on Macports, using PortAuthority v. 2.6 on Mac OS 10.5.5, with typical failure message:

"Warning: the following items did not execute (for xxxx): org.macports.activate org.macports.destroot org.macports.install"

where xxxx is some needed program. I am attaching the log file for a recent failed attempt to install rpm. I have XCode 3.1.1 installed, and have reinstalled the latest Macports and Portauthority, to no avail.

Thanks for any tips.

Joe Goddard

sh: make: command not found

How did you install Xcode? It's failing to find make, which should be /usr/bin/make.

I did a custom installation, including (nonoptional) Developer Tools Essentials and System Tools, and excluding UNIX Development Support, since I am not really a developer. Should I have included the latter? Thanks, Joe (The Plumber)

I believe it is the Unix Dev Support that gets the various tools into /usr/bin, and currently the only method MacPorts supports.

I installed the Unix Dev Support and still have the same problem. I tried doing a port installation from the terminal and got a failure as recorded here:

$ sudo port install rpm
--->  Building icu with target all
Error: Target returned: shell command " cd "/opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_ports_devel_icu/work/icu/source" && gnumake all " returned error 2
Command output: gnumake: *** No rule to make target `all'.  Stop.

Error: The following dependencies failed to build: beecrypt icu expat gettext libiconv gperf ncurses ncursesw neon openssl zlib perl5.8 popt python24 readline sqlite3
Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.

Ideas appreciated. Joe Goddard

At least it made it past building the bzip2 port, so Xcode is being seen properly; not sure why building icu is giving that error, it should be building fine; try (while in Terminal) sudo port clean --work icu then your original install again.

In fact, I did clean icu and installed it. Everything seems o.k. now. Thanks for the help.
