Request for help in resolving issue in building ports locally

Wed Mar 25 16:28:10 UTC 2020

Thanks Sir, for the valuable information. It appears that the problem is in
fact, that the port medusa has got outdated. I regret that I got digressed
from the prime issue - *Inability to build and test port in my local
machine*. (Error encountered on trying "*sudo port test*" inside the
directory of the port) I've followed the guidelines in,
but adding permissions using chmod didn't help (all necessary files seem to
possess 777 permission). Any suggestions in this regard will immensely help.

Thanks in anticipation,
Yours Sincerely,
*Saptarshi Mukherjee**.*
