When installing Wine, terminal replies Error: Port wine not found

Reported by: felipeans_13@… Owned by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.1.2
Keywords: Cc: dejesus2010@…
Port: wine


Hello, I am new to Mac Ports and recently tried to install Wine on my MacBook to run some windows programs I hastily need. That being said, I followed this guide carefully but I found an impediment on the last step to install Wine.

The terminal replied:

M-s-MacBook:~ Usuario$ sudo port install wine
Warning: /opt/local/etc/macports/variants.conf specifies invalid variant syntax '?+universal?', ignored.
Error: Port wine not found

My Macbook information is Mac OS X version 10.5.8 Processor GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and a Toshiba startup disk. Already installed Xcode Tools, Java developer, XQuartz (X11-2.6.3), and MacPorts (2.1.2) all 4 for v. 10.5.x

I would really appreciate any assist and reply.

Apparently you've put something strange in your variants.conf and should fix that. Note that the part where those instructions have you put +universal in your variants.conf has not been necessary for a long time. You can just leave your variants.conf blank and it'll work fine. MacPorts knows when ports need to be installed universal and will do so automatically.

Error: Port wine not found

MacPorts thinks the wine port doesn't exist, but of course it does. Perhaps your ports tree is out of date or even missing. Try updating it by running:

sudo port selfupdate

Do this periodically to ensure you have the latest port definitions, then update any outdated ports by running:

sudo port upgrade outdated

Thank you Ryandesign, the problem was solved by updating the port tree. Afterwards Wine´s installation ran smoothly.

Great! Hope you enjoy Wine.

The wine port contains the latest stable version of wine, but you may also want to try newer development versions, as wine is still under active development. To do so:

sudo port deactivate wine
sudo port install wine-devel

If the installation of wine stopped at wine_gecko-1.4-x86.msi and produced an error message:

Error: org.macports.configure for port wine returned: 
configure failure: command execution failed
Please see the log file for port wine for details:
To report a bug, follow the instructions in the guide:

What should I do?

I have Xcode4.6, Xquartz, and Macports all installed so I am unsure to why I am receiving an error. How can I pick up from where the installation process left off?
