DarwinPorts is now MacPorts

MacPorts

MacPorts.org
is the new home for the project-formerly-known-as-DarwinPorts.

I’ve mentioned DarwinPorts here a couple of times before [making the most of “ls”] [Fink and DarwinPorts docs].

I’ve recently had to re-install all my ports because of the move to Intel.
The old ports worked fine most of the time.
But after an uptime of a few days or so, something would break, and I would start getting errors about programs being “the wrong architecture”, even though Rosetta is supposed to handle it all.

Ah well, I might as well get as much Intel stuff as I can so my Mac runs nice and fast.
I’m now happily set up with MacPorts and have installed native versions of subversion and jove.
:-)

MacPorts has joined the wave of people dumping CVS and Bugzilla in favour of
Subversion
and
Trac.
