Error: libintl.8.dylib already exists

Reported by: jenserikkoehler@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.0.3
Keywords: Cc:
Port: fontforge

Description (last modified by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt))

Trying to install fontforge via macports.

Getting the Error:

Target org.macports.activate returned: Image error: /opt/local/lib/libintl.8.dylib already exists and does not belong to a registered port.  Unable to activate port gettext.

Using MAC OS X 10.6.8 and Xcode 4.2

Therefore I tried to install fontforge with

sudo port install fontforge configure.compiler=llvm-gcc-4.2

How to proceed? Can somebody help me?

Thank you for support.

Why does the file already exist? As the message says, MacPorts did not put it there. Remove it.

Note, you should be running Xcode 3.2.6 with Snow Leopard. I'm surprised that you could even install 4.2 because it is Lion only.

I succeeded... thank you very much.

I have updated the operating system from 10.5 to 10.6.8 without migrating macports. So I uninstalled and reinstalled all my ports. That worked fine.

Tanks again.
