> Sounds like you're still having trouble retrieving the ports tree. Did you try any of the alternative methods of obtaining the ports tree? See below:
I tried http which failed with an error:
Error: /opt/local/bin/port: port selfupdate failed: Error synchronizing MacPorts sources: shell command failed (see log for details)
I then tried svn, following the link to the website you gave me.
After making the directory and typing the commands into my terminal window. I believe my computer downloaded a lot of stuff i.e. There was an uppercase A on the left hand side of the terminal window and then things would just scroll by
I then edited sources.conf and added the following line:
I have a couple of questions
What do I do now? Run selfupdate? And if I do, how does that work does it update from the web or my computer?
Will this software be ready to use?
Why didn't rsync or http work? Is there a way to test rsync or debug to get it working? Just kinda bothers me that they didn't work? I think they were working at one point?
Anyway thanks for the help, hopefully you can help further
