first, many thanks to whomever put gnucash into the ports tree.
i thought that the someone would be interested in the problems that i
ran into while installing gnucash. the first, i found a workaround
for somewhere on the web (my apologies for the formatting):
---> Fetching scrollkeeper
---> Attempting to fetch scrollkeeper-0.3.14.tar.bz2
---> Verifying checksum(s) for scrollkeeper
---> Extracting scrollkeeper
---> Configuring scrollkeeper
---> Building scrollkeeper with target all
---> Staging scrollkeeper into destroot
---> Packaging tgz archive for scrollkeeper 0.3.14_1
---> Installing scrollkeeper 0.3.14_1
---> Activating scrollkeeper 0.3.14_1
Error: Target com.apple.activate returned: Image
error: /opt/local/var/log/scrollkeeper.log already
exists and does not belong to a registered port.
Unable to activate port scrollkeeper.
i solved the issue by deleting /opt/local/var/log/scrollkeeper.log.
it seemed innocous enough. the second problem i got was:
---> Fetching gnucash-docs
---> Attempting to fetch gnucash-docs-2.0.0.tar.gz
---> Verifying checksum(s) for gnucash-docs
---> Extracting gnucash-docs
---> Configuring gnucash-docs
Error: Target com.apple.configure returned: configure
failure: shell command "cd
&& ./configure --prefix=/opt/local" returned error 1
Command output: checking for scrollkeeper-config... no
configure: error: Couldn't find scrollkeeper-config.
Please install the scrollkeeper package:
i solved the problem by activating scrollkeeper. apparently, deleting
the log file allowed port to continue but it did not attempt to
reactivate the port.
now i have one final problem to solve. gnucash compiled successfully
but i can't run it. i've installed apple's x server (1.1) and i get
the following error when i invoke gnucash from the terminal:
_X11TransSocketINETConnect() can't get address for localhost:0:6000:
No address associated with nodename
(gnucash:8820): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
i've searched the web and it suggests that the problem is associated
with my DISPLAY environment variable. i've tried setting DISPLAY to :
0.0 and localhost:0.0 in my .bashrc to no avail. any idea what i
should do to correct this?
thanks in advance.
