New mailing lists ready

	Evening everybody! I'm happy to announce that our new mailing lists 
are ready for usage, so we plan to complete our transition to them in a 
week's time. This one will be closed to new posts ASAP (meaning, when I 
get to it later on today ;-) and an auto-reply will be sent instructing 
you to join the new ones on MacOSForge if you do happen to post to it 
by mistake. Therefore all current and new threads will be 
continued/held there. For more information on our new mailing lists, 
check my post explaining them:


	Next week I'll consider this list completely closed and ready for 
removal from the map, so be quick to join us on MacOSForge if you're 
interested in keeping up with discussion.

ANN: Port Authority 1.1

Port Authority 1.1, the GUI for MacPorts, is now available.  This
version updates the application to reflect the transition to the
MacPorts name,  interface enhancements, an improved user help system
that is now searchable and easily browsed, and bug fixes.

With this release, I am moving away from the hybrid freeware/payware
approach that I used with version 1.0. The free X11 version will no
longer be developed. I have changed the license from  GPL to a standard
shareware license. A free updater is available for paid users of the
1.0-Aqua version, and a 30-day demo is available for others who wish to
try the Aqua version.

For more information, and to download, see

Support questions should be directed to me off-list. Thank you.

Problems activating pdflib

Hey Everyone,

I'm having a lot of trouble installing pdflib.  The Version of  
DarwinPorts is 1.320.

Here's the output I'm getting:
sudo port activate pdflib
--->  Activating pdflib
Error: port activate failed: Image error: /opt/local/lib/perl5/ 
site_perl/5.8.8/darwin-2level already exists and does not belong to a  
registered port.  Unable to activate port pdflib.

Any help?

Thanks a bunch!

MacOS X fonts with Darwinports applications?


is there a way to make the MacOS X fonts available for Darwinports 
applications, like with the applesystemfonts and xfontpath packages in *duck*

I have provided a patch for the first bug, and a complete updated  
Portfile for the second one.  Thanks in advance!

tomcat5 and related dependent ports on Intel

Has anyone had any luck installing the tomcat5 port (and its dependencies
such as kaffe, junit, et al) on a Mac running Intel and 10.4.x ?

I have had an awful time trying to install the tomcat5 "family" of ports
starting with kaffe on Intel. Previously I had no problem installing these
port on the PPC Macs but now starting with Darwin Ports 1.3.2 and
XCode 2.4(as recommended by several people on the mailing list who
scolded me for
using anything less than 2.4), I can not even get the kaffe port to install
successfully on PPC.

If there's not much interest and if maintenance is too much of a hassle,
perhaps MacPorts should consider dropping the tomcat5 / java related ports
from the entire repertoire of ports?

Best regards,

Thanks - that got me going.

GNUstep broken


it seems the GNUstep portfile is broken. Darwinports looks for an outdated 
version of gworkspace, which is no longer available on the servers.

TIA for fixing,

Trouble with libgnomeui

I'm having trouble with libgnomeui on a new macports install on  
10.4.7 with xcode 2.4. Any ideas what I can do to fix this? I've  
tried removing, rebuilding, and reinstalling libgnomeui and related  
ports like gconf, gtk2, gnome-vfs, etc.
