Wanted to point out a point of...difficulty experienced with macports.
In case anyone out there is interested in user feedback for how to
make it a more friendly experience :)
$ sudo port install texi2html
---> Computing dependencies for texi2html
---> Fetching texi2html
---> Attempting to fetch texi2html-5.0.tar.bz2 from
---> Verifying checksum(s) for texi2html
Error: Checksum (md5) mismatch for texi2html-5.0.tar.bz2
Error: Checksum (sha1) mismatch for texi2html-5.0.tar.bz2
Error: Checksum (rmd160) mismatch for texi2html-5.0.tar.bz2
The non-matching file appears to be HTML. See this page for possible reasons
for the checksum mismatch:
Error: Target org.macports.checksum returned: Unable to verify file checksums
Log for texi2html is at:
Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.
To report a bug, see <http://guide.macports.org/#project.tickets>
The only problem being...this error message (nor the log file) tell me
which server it used to download from, nor give me a hint as to how to
use another one. Perhaps it should link to a FAQ entry that discusses
(for followers, the file was indeed HTML, and manually downloading
the top* of that file overcame the problem, but that was hard to
figure out--attempting to reinstall always resulted in the same
problem, so there didn't appear to be an easy workaround).
