#62062 new defect

Cannot install ntfs-3g

Reported by: knightjp Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.6.4
Keywords: Cc: cooljeanius (Eric Gallager)
Port: ntfs-3g

Description (last modified by knightjp)

Before attempting to install this port, I installed the latest Fuse or macFuse as it is now known. However the port does not see macFuse as installed and is attempting to install osxfuse as a dependency, which ends up in an error.

I realized that I forgot an important step..

sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/fuse.pc /opt/local/lib/pkgconfig/fuse.pc

After you use this command, Fuse is detected - even the latest macFuse.

Correct. MacPorts is designed not to find random software you installed elsewhere.

sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/fuse.pc /opt/local/lib/pkgconfig/fuse.pc

Please don't do that.

Why not?

I tried to install ntfs-3g without having FUSE installed. It would require osxfuse as a dependency, but whenever it comes to installing osxfuse from macports, it would stop with errors. I tried to install osxfuse port just by itself and it would not install. It gave me the same errors.

This way worked and it was given to me by another macports user.
