Fink – F.A.Q. – Fink Usage

My fink installation was a little messed up by my poor backup strategy. I went hunting and found this mechanism for doing a reset of the CVS libraries on my system. Worked like a charm.

In this case you need to reset your cvs directories. Use the command:

sudo find /sw/fink -type d -name 'CVS' -exec rm -rf {} ; fink selfupdate-cvs

  1. Hi, I am trying to install ccp4 on my MacBook OS X 10.4.6 Intel using

    fink install ccp4

    and I get the following error:

    Failed: phase compiling: tcltk-8.4.13-3 failed

    Earlier in the morning I got a different type of error compaining about
    not being able to parse the 5th line in /sw/etc/fink.conf so I edited the
    file that now looks like this:
