(0) "DarwinPorts-1.0.dmg" is for PPC only and OSX 10.2 and 10.3; it may or not work on an Intel-Mac or on 10.4; it wasn't designed to work on an Intel-Mac or 10.4.

(1) The first version that was a universal install (and thus for 10.4 and Intel-Mac) is 1.2.1; start with that or 1.3, or the recently released 1.4; then "port" should run properly and "sudo port selfupdate" should also work properly. The "mp_inst.csh" script I wrote is really meant for 1.2.1+, since there were also grammar changes in the way "port" works.

If you want to get rid of your original "DarwinPort-1.0" install, and have nothing else installed, the simplest way is "sudo rm -rf /opt". Even if you have something else installed, I would advise you to just remove everything and start from scratch, since there have been quite a few changes in "port" over the years and versions.

(2) Don't start with a pre-compiled install unless you have to; download the source & compile it in the "usual" manner (./configure; make; sudo make install). Again, this is all done by the "mp_inst.csh" script.

If what you want is to get the background libraries / apps / includes for compiling GNU Radio, the simplest way - barring other constraints - is to use the "mp_inst.csh" script ... it just "does it all" with minimal hassle ... be patient, it takes a while to install even on a zippy Intel-Mac. - MLD
