libxml2: libxml2-2.9.2.tar.gz does not exist in /opt/local/var/macports/distfiles/libxml2

Port: libxml2


To whom it may concern,

I have had a problem installing mpich-gcc version 4.9 on the following machine: ProductName: Mac OS X ProductVersion: 10.11.1 BuildVersion: 15B42 And with the Xcode version 2343.

After reading the log file it seems like the problem is with the checksum of libxml2.

I have installed gcc49 (using sudo port install gcc49) and attempted several times to install mpish-gcc49 (using sudo port install mpich-gcc49) . The latter was always followed by the following error:

Error: org.macports.checksum for port libxml2 returned: libxml2-2.9.2.tar.gz does not exist in /opt/local/var/macports/distfiles/libxml2

I have also attached the libxml2 log file, if it is of any help. I have also looked at the FAQ and uninstalled the gcc49 port and restarted the process, and also updated MacPort (sudo port self update), and tried sudo port clean --dist mpish-gcc49.

I hope I provided all the necessary information, as I was not able to find any help online.

Looking forward to your reply.

Kind regards,

As it says in the guide, you need to clean the affected port and try again before opening a ticket. In this case, it will fix this problem.

sudo port clean libxml2
