The other day I wanted to install the hot new SCM git – and an easy way to do this is using MacPorts.
So I opened up the terminal and banged out:
sudo port install git-coreIt chugged away installing nicely until it tried to install rsync as a dependency:
---> Attempting to fetch rsync-2.6.9.tar.gz from http://svn.macports.org/repository/macports/downloads/rsync Error: Target org.macports.fetch returned: fetch failed Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.
I fixed this by running the selfupdate command for MacPorts
sudo port selfupdate
After that the git installation worked fine.
