Just installed macports in lion on my MacBook pro.
I originally wanted to use recoll, a unix search tool. I understand recoll has dependencies, and according to the recoll website it is included with macports.
So the first thing I did when I installed the lion dmg file on my computer. Was to go into terminal and type:
sudo port install recoll
I got an error:
Error: Port recoll not found
So I wondered, I just installed macports where is recoll?
What should I do?
I thought about running selfupdate, but can't get rsync working.
I wondered, I know it says to run selfupdate often. And I obviously want it working. But I just installed macports shouldn't I have recoll already?
And what is the ports tree. Do I have a ports tree by default when installing macports, or do I get it by running selfupdate?
I thought about running selfupdate by using subversion, but just wanted to try and understand macports a little more
Thanks in advance
