#38948 new defect

Cannot use port select bpython with bpython_select

Reported by: nathan.farrar@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.1.3
Keywords: Cc: kurthindenburg (Kurt Hindenburg)
Port: bpython_select

Description (last modified by mf2k (Frank Schima))

It appears that the select command requires specific documentation files to be in place in order to work correctly.

oxsyn@purgatory:~$ sudo port select --set bpython bpython27
Selecting 'bpython27' for 'bpython' failed: could not create new link "/opt/local/share/man/man1/bpython.1": target "/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/share/man/man1/bpython.1" doesn't exist

What version of the py27-bpython do you have? Would you please paste the output of

$ port installed py27-bpython

port select works for me with py27-bpython @0.12_2.

Perhaps some version of py-bpython didn't have the man page

The select requires these:

bin/bpython
bin/bpython-gtk
bin/bpython-urwid
share/man/man1/bpython.1
share/man/man5/bpython-config.5

It works for me w/ the latest.

I still have the same or similar issue with the ports below;

bpython_select @0.1 (python)
py-bpython @0.14.2 (python)
py27-bpython @0.14.2 (python)

Error:

sudo port select --set bpython bpython27
Selecting 'bpython27' for 'bpython' failed: could not create new link "/opt/local/bin/bpython-gtk": target "/opt/local/bin/bpython-gtk-2.7" doesn't exist
