ImageMagick install problem

Reported by: dylan.matthews@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.1.2
Keywords: Cc: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)
Port: ImageMagick

Description (last modified by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt))

When I try to install the ImageMagick port, I get the following errors which send it into an infinite loop:

Warning: No port ncursesw found in the index; can't rebuild
Warning: No port xorg-liblbxutil found in the index; can't rebuild
Warning: No port xorg-liboldX found in the index; can't rebuild

I've run selfupdate and sync and they don't seem to do anything. I can't uninstall the libraries in question because other ports depend on them. And I have to delete .registry.lock to even get port to run much of the time. Help?

Uninstall the ports ncursesw, xorg-liblbxutil and xorg-liboldX. xorg-liblbxutil and xorg-liboldX were deleted from MacPorts three years ago in r55482, ncursesw earlier this year in r91972 after having already been obsolete for some time. No ports depend on these obsolete ports.

sudo port -f uninstall ncursesw xorg-liblbxutil xorg-liboldX

Replying to dylan.matthews@…:

I have to delete .registry.lock to even get port to run much of the time.

I've never had to do this; I would think this should never be necessary.
