#38061 closed defect (fixed)

fish's +xsel variant conflicts with the xsel port

Reported by: cooljeanius (Eric Gallager) Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.1.3
Keywords: Cc: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)
Port: fish xsel


When installing fish +xsel, it tries to install a binary named xsel into ${prefix}/bin, which conflicts with xsel binary provided by the xsel port. Because of this, I suggest that fish's +xsel variant get split into two variants: one that uses the bundled xsel, and one that uses the one provided by MacPorts.

Ideally, if fish can use MacPorts xsel, it should always do that (when its +xsel variant is selected), and not try to use its own. Then there would be no conflict.

For now, I marked fish +xsel as conflicting with xsel (r103115) and opened a ticket for making fish use MacPorts’ xsel (#38071).
