sudo: port: command not found

export PATH=$PATH:/opt/local/bin
export MANPATH=$MANPATH:/opt/local/share/man
export INFOPATH=$INFOPATH:/opt/local/share/info

Included the above lines in .bash_profile (my mac is using bash shell) and voila a nagging problem sudo: port: command not found is gone!!!

sudo port -d selfupdate

ran successfully. Now I was able to install FreeImage by running:
sudo port install freeimage

  5. Seems like this worked fine for most of you so i thought il try it.
    Unfortunaley i cant find my .bash_profile file.

    ReplyDelete
  6. just try doing the following:

    vi .bash_profile


    then hit o to add a new line, paste the lines posted, hit esc to end editing and hold shift and hit zz to save. Then quit & restart your terminal and you should be golden.

  10. Hi, I was wondering if someone could help me- i have a macbook running leopard 10.5. I am new to macs but pretty experienced with unix/linux. The problem is that after making some changes to my .bashrc file my bash commands have stopped working. I cannot even use ls, cp, mv etc. Please can someone help

    ReplyDelete
  11. A bit late in the life of this thread but look for ~/.profile instead. I have 10.5.2 and it certainly has no .bash_profile but, like some other *nixes, uses .profile.

  16. I don't know if it fixed it for me, but t got rid of the message! (I think it all worked fine, but my command was bad, as I can now do sudo port, and it accepts that now) Thanks a bunch!!

  17. hey, it's OK if i put down the lines on bash when i first opened up terminal and pressed enter for each line? i did not open up .bash_profile before i included the lines. yeah, i opened up .bash_profile later and included the lines, but i hope putting the lines straight after opening the terminal did not do anything.

  24. following the rails install guide my .bash_login file looked like this:

    export PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/mysql/bin:$PATH"
    export MANPATH="/usr/local/man:$MANPATH"


    simply adding: export INFOPATH=$INFOPATH:/opt/local/share/info

    did not work, so i removed all of what i had cut n paste your lines and it installed. It worked however I am concerned about future conflicts. I will post your lines above my previous lines and see how that works out.

    Thanks for posting this.
