As per the MacPorts TWiki entry on the 03rd

Don, are you sure your portfiles are up to date? Maybe you need to do

sudo ports selfupdate

since if one looks at

I find only

depends_lib        port:python26 \

I did not realize the above until after I had tested the possibility of the following workaround but, having briefly tested, I may as well report that in my Leopard MacPorts I *inactivated* smpeg and it made no difference to my being able to run GMUmed.


The workaround would have been to exclude smpeg from the dependencies for py26-wxpython, since smpeg is needed AFAICT only to support video and audio playback. Therefore even if py26-wxpython would expect smpeg to be installed, as far as GNUmed is concerned it may only become necessary for smpeg to be installed if the praxis archives document parts which contain mpeg.

The workaround might be to save locally a copy of the py26-wxpython portfile after following the instructions at

where, after inserting into your opt/local/etc/macports/sources.conf (before the rsync URL) the line


you would instead of

mkdir -p ports/games/bestevergame


mkdir -p ports/python/py26-wxpython

and into that directory save the altered version of the portfile and do


and then the next time you would do an install, MacPorts should take its pointers from your local portfile before checking other sources.
