Ticket #29946 (new defect)

Opened 3 years ago

Last modified 21 months ago

mplayer-devel @current install can fail if interrupted

Reported by: rogerdpack@… Owned by: acho@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.9.2
Keywords: Cc: jeremyhu@…
Port: mplayer-devel

Description (last modified by ryandesign@…) (diff)

Hello all.

Got this today

$ sudo port install mplayer-devel -f

...
svn: Destination directory exists; please remove the directory or use --force to overwrite
svn: '/opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_ports_multimedia_mplayer-devel/work/trunk' already exists

I think the svn co wants to include "--force" perhaps, or something like that(or an extra preceding rm -rf)? Otherwise you can't reinstall it like with other packages you typically can.
Thanks!

This is only a problem if you interrupt the fetch phase. Interrupting MacPorts when it's doing anything other than the build phase of a port is probably not a good idea and can lead to badness. Work around this by cleaning before trying again.

sudo port clean mplayer-devel

Not sure what to do about this... it's just unfortunate... I guess I can cleanup fetch to handle errors better...

my hope is that an eventual fix for #29223 might help this out as well...
