MetaSkills MacPorts repository

You can learn about setting up your own MacPorts repos at the following links.

In short, I added this to my /opt/local/etc/macports/sources.conf file.

file:///Users/kencollins/Repositories/macports [nosync]

Now run the portindex command while in that directory to pick up on changes to your own Portfiles.

Generating Checksum Examples

$ shasum -a 256 /Users/kencollins/Desktop/freetds-
$ openssl sha1 /Users/kencollins/Desktop/freetds-
$ openssl rmd160 /Users/kencollins/Desktop/freetds-

My Oracle 64-bit Notes (

This Portfile only focuses on x86_64 for intel. It also installs the sqlplus package. Even though it does fix pre-built libraries using otool and install_name_tool, you still have to use DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH. Just follow the notes in the post install message.

  • sudo port install oracle-instantclient @ +universal

My FreeTDS Notes

  • deactivate, activate, install
  • freetds@0.82_0
$ sudo port install freetds@1.0rc1_1 +openssl

My ImageMagic v6.6.2 Notes

First I did a full check out of the MacPorts trunk.

$ cd ~/Repositories
$ svn co macports_trunk
$ cd macports_trunk

Now I found out what was the commit that had the last version v6.6.2 mentioned

$ svn log dports/graphics/ImageMagick/Portfile
... examine output ...
r69223 | | 2010-06-29 00:16:10 -0400 (Tue, 29 Jun 2010) | 2 lines
ImageMagick: update to 6.6.2-9; see #25457

Now make it in out own port index.

$ mkdir graphics
$ svn co  -r 69223 '' graphics/ImageMagick
$ portindex

Now install it.

$ sudo port install ImageMagick @6.6.2-9
$ sudo port clean ImageMagick
$ export CC="/usr/bin/gcc-4.2"
