mac port stuff broke svn

So… today I was trying to install some junk with mac port with no luck (ended up getting the source myself and compiling it).

As a parting gift, it broke subversion for me:

$ svn status
dyld: Library not loaded: /opt/local/lib/libaprutil-1.0.dylib
  Referenced from: /opt/local/bin/svn 
  Reason: Incompatible library version: svn requires version 5.0.0 or later, but libaprutil-1.0.dylib provides version 4.0.0
Trace/BPT trap

Great! Getting stuff done at work is overrated… instead maybe I can spend 20-30 minutes trying to unfck this!

Eventually, I came across enough hints to run this magic:

$ sudo port -R upgrade gettext

Now svn worked, but complained:

$ svn status
svn: E155036: Please see the 'svn upgrade' command
svn: E155036: Working copy '/Users/username/src/co/work/xo/some-stuff' is too old (format 10, created by Subversion 1.6)

Interestingly… in shells that were started before the port shenanigans, the output from “svn –version –quiet” says “1.6.16” and new shells say “1.7.8”

Now all I have to do is run “svn upgrade” in any directories I checked out with the 1.6 version…

Hope this helps someone…

mac port problem: dyld: Library not loaded: /opt/local/lib/libintl.8.dylib

So… I updated mac ports and it went batsh!t insane and everything broke:

derp[10:14:40]: git init
dyld: Library not loaded: /opt/local/lib/libintl.8.dylib
  Referenced from: /opt/local/bin/git
  Reason: image not found
Trace/BPT trap

well done!

Luckily… some other apps had this missing bullsh!t installed (locate ftw) so I was able to “fix” it with this:

sudo cp -i /Applications/ /opt/local/lib/libintl.8.dylib

copy paste on mac blows

Thinking of a song to the tune of “kharma chameleon” like:

Copy, copy, copy, copy, copy and paste ;
It comes and goes, it comes and goes.
Thought it would be easy to copy paste on mac in my dreams,
I use words obscene, I rant and scream.

what your parents never told you about planet ass

A while back (June of 2010), I had some fun writing a little screensaver for my mac. I was really surprised how easy it was versus other platforms I’d tried before (windows and linux).

Writing a program that will run as a screensaver is really operating system specific and it was cool the mac was so ez!

My original effort was pretty lame, but got the plumbing and the openGL and I always meant to get back to it.

The other day, I wrote a small shell script around my old project which would use it as a template to create a new screensaver:

$ ./ PlanetAss

This is how Planet Ass was born!

It’s checked into github if you want to fool with it

I put up a build of it, but dunno exactly where it can run… I works on my 10.6.8 intel guy…

It’s there is you wanna fiddle with it / use it! Have fun!
