When I typed port, portmirror or anything related to darwinports (macports), I got a strange error with no google hits.

# portmirror can't find package macports while executing "package require macports" (file "/opt/local/bin/portmirror" line 11) stormbringer:~/phonedmg root# port can't find package macports while executing "package require macports" (file "/opt/local/bin/port" line 42)

The solution was to download macports 1.5 and run it again. It’s been a while since I had used ports on my Mac and maybe the project got renamed or changed. I dunno.

Then “port selfupdate” failed with “Directory not empty” errors from mv:rename so I did this:

mv /opt/local/var/db/dports/distfiles/ /opt/local/var/macports/distfiles mv /opt/local/var/db/dports/receipts/ /opt/local/var/macports/receipts/ mv /opt/local/var/db/dports/software/ /opt/local/var/macports/software/

Then it seemed to work:

# port selfupdate MacPorts base version 1.5 installed Downloaded MacPorts base version 1.510 Configuring, Building and Installing new MacPorts base selfupdate done!
