Attempted to install Fink Commander's "Umbrello" from source on an existing MacBook Pro Intel Core 2 Duo with working Xcode 2.4.1 and X11 stops when detecting my existing X11 Apple install and advises I visit "http://fink.sourceforge.net/faq/usage-packages.php#apple-x11-wants-xfree86" for configuration information.
The anchor "#apple-x11-wants-xfree86" does not appear to be valid.
FAQ "Q9.11: I installed Apple's X11 but Fink keeps asking to install XFree86 or X.org." appears to be the closest to the issue.
Search for 2 instances of "misses".
Do you seriously want me to believe that the Apple X11 installer "misses" a file and that I must "keep doing this" (i.e. keep reinstalling X11SDK)? Or even that the Fink "Apple" installer misses a file (if I have misread this)?
fink list -i system-xfree86
i system-xfree86 2:4.4-2 [placeholder for user installed x11]
i system-xfree86-dev 2:4.4-2 [placeholder for user installed x11 development tools]
i system-xfree86-shlibs 2:4.4-2 [placeholder for user installed x11 shared libraries]
Does this mean these 3 packages are installed? Or that this is the place they will be installed when they are correctly installed?
I installed the http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/fink/Fink-0.8.1-Intel-Installer.dmg?download which reports 17931120 bytes size on disk. How do I verify 17510 KB or how about an MD5 hash?
How does this version compare to "fink (>=0.18.3-1)"? Am I looking at the right application?
If the Apple installer "misses a file", please open a bug report at https://bugreport.apple.com/
fink list -i someOtherPackages
appears to reply with a version when the GUI also has in installed version, so it would seem that I have the system-xfree86* packages.
Just for grins, I installed a binary (lincity). It appears to have installed, but I don't see how to launch it. The docs say the command is lincity or xlincity, but I only find directories named lincity -- no executable.
This is my first attempt at using Fink. I had heard good things.
