Please remember to use WikiFormatting.

Can you provide any background about how you got into this situation? The registry is of course not supposed to become corrupt, and it's hard without additional information from you to figure out how it became that way on your system.

So, now I can't do updates for may ports tree :/

$ uname -a

Also, I am on Mountain Lion with Xcode45-DP2 (build ports fine), but shows error (warning?), suggested changed (xcode-select -switch) does not help

Error: No valid Xcode installation is properly selected.
Error: Please use xcode-select to select an Xcode installation:

Similar error when I try to upgrade perl, due to help2man:

About history - I did not do something special, just upgrade ports tree time to time.

After upgrade on mountain lion I have faced with problem that mod_php from ports does not loaded into new apache (from base system). Then I've tried to upgrade it, it builds lots of ports and finally stuck with m4 problem and/or help2man problem.

Suggestion how to fix database is very appreciated.

Duplicate of #34482.

I currently have no time to dig into this for you, but the information in #34482 should get you started in fixing this.

comment:6 Changed 9 years ago by vgrebenschikov

Ehh, I've found a way, but now it hard to do this through command line due to unknown collation sequence:

sqlite> SELECT id,name,version,variants,date,requested,state,installtype FROM ports WHERE name LIKE 'm4';
Error: no such collation sequence: VERSION

comment:7 Changed 9 years ago by neverpanic (Clemens Lang)

Locate macports.sqlext (it should be somewhere below /opt/local/var/macports/sources/) and run

.load /path/to/macports.sqlext

in the SQLite shell.

comment:8 Changed 9 years ago by vgrebenschikov

Thanks, now it works

sqlite3  /opt/local/var/macports/registry/registry.db
SQLite version 3.7.11 2012-03-20 11:35:50
Enter ".help" for instructions
Enter SQL statements terminated with a ";"
sqlite> .load /opt/local/var/macports//sources/rsync.macports.org/release/base/src/cregistry/macports.sqlext

sqlite> 

I've fixed database, what is strange, in my case fixing query was:

UPDATE dependencies SET id = 686 WHERE id = 1;

same id=686 as in #34482, probably it is magic number?

Please remember to use WikiFormatting when writing in Trac. I have fixed your formatting in the comments above.
