I have snow leopard OS and wanted to install Python 2.5 so I can write code
for Google App Engine.
I found that MacPorts is an easy way to install Python 2.5, so I installed
MacPorts and installed Python 2.5 using it.
The install failed to complete and raised errors.
Digging around I found the errors are because Python 2.5 is already
installed on Snow Leopard, so all I have done is corrupt my pre-exisitng
I now want to remove the files added by MacPorts and then uninstall
I am typing sudo port -f uninstall installed.
This asks me for a password to proceed.
I have no password. I have never been given a password by MacPorts and I do
not have a password set up on my Mac.
However, when I click Return after being prompted for a password it says
Sorry, try again.
Any clues? Help? Can I remove the software in any other way?
