Port: virtuoso-7

Description (last modified by jmroot (Joshua Root))

I want to build okular, but it stopped at the failure of virtuoso-7. The Xcode is 10.1, and it is properly installed and complete. The error message is the following:

---> Fetching distfiles for virtuoso-7
---> Attempting to fetch virtuoso-opensource-7.2.5.tar.gz from
---> Verifying checksums for virtuoso-7
---> Extracting virtuoso-7
---> Configuring virtuoso-7
Some antivirus software can cause the virtuoso build to hang
indefinitely. If you have any antivirus software installed,
please disable it while building virtuoso; it can be re-enabled
after virtuoso has been installed.

This happened only on my MacBook Pro.

I installed virtuoso-7 successfully on two IMacs without any difficulty. they are also running with OS 10.14 and Xcode 10.1.

Oh oh:

clang: error: no such file or directory: '/usr/local/lib/libfreetype.dylib'

Looks like you have either homebrew installed, or perhaps somehow you have installed freetype yourself from some kind of archive. Either way, that's your issue.

Sort that out, uninstall homebrew, get rid of the /usr/local stuff, clean up your build, and try again. Please post back if you still have troubles after doing all that.

Thanks to Oh oh.

Homebrew is not installed on this MacBook Pro. Indeed I do not have the file: /usr/local/lib/libfreetype.dylib as you indicated. Should I install it from Opensource? I am trouled by the fact that I installed virtuoso-7 successfully, and they do not have this libfree.dylib either.

I cleared the Macports completely, and reinstalled it. The trouble remains.

No -- it is erroring out because it's not finding that file -- but it should not be looking for that file in the first place.

So something on that machine is making it look for that file, and this is what you need to sort out.

Is there anything at all in /usr/local? If so, get it outta there.

If there is nothing in /usr/local and this is still happening, you have a mystery on your hands.

Try a trace build, in that case:

sudo port -v -t install  virtuoso-7

and see where that goes for you.

Dear Ken:

Thanks for your kind help. My /usr/local is full of many things, such as the TeX Live 2018. I cannot get rid of them. After trying you suggestion to no avail, I just deleted the whole Macports package, and reinstalled it the 2nd time. It succeeded.

The failure is probably due to a bad download, but I cannot be sure.

Please kindly close this ticket.
