Upgrading Macports to use XCode 4.3.2
can be a chore. To cut to the chase, you definitely want the “Command Line Tools” to be installed in addition to the XCode download from the App Store.
I just upgraded my XCode installation to the latest Mac App Store version and naturally macports
broke. So I updated it to the currently latest version available (2.04) that is known to work with the latest XCode. Whenever you migrate your macports installation to a major release change you probably want to reinstall your installation tree. But this failed big time for me. As I said before, there is a little more to just downloading the app from the App store…
- After XCode successfully installed, open preferences, go to Downloads tab and select at least Command Line Tools. You need to enter your Apple Developer Id in order to proceed.
- The next thing you want to do is a
sudo xcode-select -switch /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer
- It might work now but I had to link the /Developers directory as well
sudo ln -s /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer /Developer
ln -s llvm-gcc-4.2 clang
- To upgrade your installed macports follow the migration guide
This did the trick for me this time… currently compiling package 45 of 447.
