I was trying to install recoll, using macports.
I downloaded macports and ran the installer. I wasn't able to use selfupdate because I couldn't use rsync.
So I was following the wiki tutorial on how to use subversion to update the ports tree.
I believe I was able to get the port tree using subversion.
But my terminal wasn't able to properly sync my ports tree. I had edited sources.conf by adding the following line as per wiki instructions.
But my macports wasn't syncing, I had all zereos. And macports wasn't recognizing recoll.
So I edited sources.conf by adding the line
I tried that line because that was the directory where my port tree files were located.
Anyway when I ran the synced command again terminal added a lot of ports at the end I got the following from terminal
Total number of ports parsed: 12143
Ports successfully parsed: 12143
Ports failed: 0
Up-to-date ports skipped: 0
I then ran sudo port -d install recoll
And I was able to download and install recoll and it's dependencies.
I have a couple of questions:
Why did changing the path from the wiki article work?
Did sync work correctly, why didn't terminal recognize the ports from the ports tree?
It seemed to re-download the files from the ports tree?
When my macports recognized the install recoll command did it use subversion? Or did rsync just start working? Can you install a port without rsync?
