I seem to be unable to upgrade or install Qt4-mac on an older Core2
Duo mini. At first, I tried to just use port upgrade (after a
selfupdate). It fell over but I didn't save any logs. This machine
has had MacPorts on it for a long time--4 years plus or minus--but
only for a couple of small things. So I did "sudo port uninstall
installed" which completed without complaint.
The attached log picks up with "sudo port install qt4-mac +mysql".
That failed thusly:
>Error: Requested variants "" do not match original selection "+universal".
>Please use the same variants again, perform 'port clean perl5.12' or
>specify the force option (-f).
>Error: Failed to install perl5.12
I then cleaned perl5.12 and tried "sudo port install perl5.12
+universal". It trundled away installing several universal versions
of dependencies but while 'finishing' it found 4 broken ports and
reinstalled them. Then it found 2 broken ports (different this time)
and reinstalled them. After that it found 4 broken ports--the same
it found the first time and reinstalled them. Next it found 7 broken
ports, including some repeats and some new, and ... Eventually I hit
Rather than mess around more, what is the best way to start
fresh--short of wiping the disk and reinstalling OS X, XCode, etc?
