Ticket #2506 (closed enhancement: wontfix)

Opened 9 years ago

Last modified 7 years ago

No way to downgrade to old version of port

Reported by: kevin@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: base Version: 1.0
Keywords: Cc:


I upgraded my zlib port, but that broke the things that depend on it which (strangely) linked to libz.1.2.1.dylib instead of libz.1.dylib (or just libz.dylib). I wanted to downgrade, but I absolutely could not figure out any way to do it. I eventually had to hack the Portfile to list the old version, so it could finally extract my previous installation from the packages dir.

I think an appropriate solution for this is to let the unarchive command take an optional version argument, so I could have simply done 'sudo port unarchive zlib 1.2.1_3' and then 'sudo port install zlib' and had it work.
