Ok, last night I went through and removed every file and folder I
could find and then reinstalled, and tried the .bash_profile to add
the path. Now DP is installed and runs, though when I go to install
fox or glut it seems to be trying to get them from opendarwin.org .
Naturally, it just runs through those 4 servers over and over again.
One odd thing is it's trying to fetch the file XFree86-4.5.0-
src-3.tgz or XFree86-4.5.0-src-4.tgz , and tries to fetch it for
either of my attempted installs. When I look in my sources.conf file,
I see things pointed at rsync://rsync.darwinports.org/dpupdate/
dports . Am I correct that this(where the port is looking for the
file) is something set server side?
