Description

Hello!

I was going through some of the steps at:
http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/misc/distributions/#macports

And when I got to the #macports section the stuff seems out of date and didn't work on my system.

MacPorts
Django 0.96 can be installed via the MacPorts system. If you’re using Python 2.4, type sudo port install py-django-devel. For Python 2.5, type sudo port install py25-django-devel. MacPorts can also be used to install a database, and the Python interface to your chosen database.

I updated MacPorts and the current version is

$ port search django
py25-django @1.0.2 (python, www)

Django is a high-level Python Web framework

Whereas the info on the site says:
py25-django-devel

Which on my updated MacPorts results in:
$ sudo port install py25-django-devel
Password:
Error: Port py25-django-devel not found

There may be some way (I dunno) to have MacPorts automatically look for "development" packages, but as written, the instructions don't work on a current system, and the version number is wrong.

best,
Russell

Hi Russell,

We are actually in the process of refactoring that page to bring things up to date (#10424). Specific instructions have been moved to the wiki. See if those instructions work for you.
