I wish I could give you an example, let me try to explain:
sudo port -v install
Thats it, that is all I get, it just sits there, nothing, a blank line
in the shell, fully stalled. Next time, I will run `lsof` and `top`
and see what is going on.
I can only recover from the above with a control-c
After that control-c, if I run the same command, -d instead,
immediately, all the debug and info lines are sent to the screen.
Not a huge deal, if others saw it, I would look into it. I'm building
out ports to three test machines, to make sure all is working, one is
a mac mini intel, macbook intel, and a PPC G5, I want to cover all
bases. I have seen it happen on two of those machines, the mini has
not happened yet, but I do not always test on that machine.
The only non standard thing I am doing from a normal plain install, is
I do have a file:/// reference in sources.conf, since I have local
If you can think of any other tests I should look at other than `top`
to see if cpu is being used in large amounts, or `lsof` to see what
files may or may not be hooked into, let me know, I will add them to
my list of things to try.
I just found out ports is tcl under the hood, making all issues like
this much more approachable to me as far as looking into it. I
assumed it would be a flavor of C under the hood. Pretty happy it is
not, this allows me to possibly contribute back, once I get over this
little learning hump.
Thanks for the help.
