El Capitan Problems

General Issues

First of all, please read Migration.

Updating MacPorts Base

MacPorts must be re-installed in a version configured for OS X 10.11 El Capitan.

Ensure you have at least the command line tools installed by running xcode-select --install from a Terminal. Make sure to also run this even if you have Xcode installed, because some ports fail to build without it. You also have to run sudo xcodebuild -license after doing this.

If you get a CoreSimulator error message

Ensure your macports user has the correct home directory. (#49101)

Run the following (#45445):

sudo launchctl asuser id -u macports sudo -u macports xcrun simctl list
