Description (last modified by mf2k (Frank Schima))


When I try to install arb using MacPorts I get

Error: Target org.macports.fetch returned: Subversion check out failed
Log for arb is at: /opt/local/var/macports/logs/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_ports_science_arb/main.log
Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.

Do you have any idea what might be going wrong here and what I might be able to do to fix it?

Thanks, Erin

Please remember to cc the maintainer. Your /usr/bin/svn appears to be broken. Not knowing how that happened, the only advice I can give is to undo whatever you did to it. Reinstall if all else fails.

In future, please ask for help on the macports-users mailing list or IRC first if you're not certain that your problem is due to a bug in MacPorts. The bug tracker is not for tech support.

Do you use a proxy server? It is possible you need to set the proxy settings for Subversion!? I had the same issue behind the university proxy here and that seemed to have solved it.

The settings can be found in ~/.subversion in the servers file. You should sudo nano ~/.subversions/servers and changed the http-proxy-host and http-proxy-port variables in the [global] section near the bottom of the file :)

I also incidentally amended the [groups] section to have group1 = * and the [group1] section to have the same http-proxy-host and http-proxy-port variables as above, but also uncommented and changed the username variable to coder (as the username:password for the ARB subversion site is coder:gimmeARBsource), but after commenting these out again it still worked.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
