How to Compile Source from FreeBSD Ports

Postby fmh » Fri Aug 15, 2014 12:23 am

Hello,

I never compiled anything under FreeBSD before. A software package is no longer maintained on the current version of FreeBSD that I am interested in. ARANYM. (An Atari 16/32 bit computer Virtual Machine Environment) I downloaded the source from Sourceforge.net for the proper version of the software ( aranym-0.7.0.tar.gz) and I downloaded the FreeBSD Port (aranym-0.7.0-FreeBSD-port.tgz). I unpacked the port in my Downloads folder. When I type 'make' I get the following :

aranym-0.7.0 depends on file: /usr/local/sbin/pkg - found
=> aranym-0.7.0.tar.gz is not in /home/fmh/Downloads/aranym-0.7.0-FreeBSD-port/emulators/aranym/distinfo.
=> Either /home/fmh/Downloads/aranym-0.7.0-FreeBSD-port/emulators/aranym/distinfo is out of date, or
=> aranym-0.7.0.tar.gz is spelled incorrectly.
*** Error code 1

Stop.
make: stopped in /home/fmh/Downloads/aranym-0.7.0-FreeBSD-port/emulators/aranym

The port is about 10 years old. I just want to see if I can get it to compile and run. Where do I put the aranym-0.7.0.tar.gz file so the MakeFile files finds it?

The latest Source is here but I didn't use the latest but the 0.7.0. http://aranym.org/download.html

Source I got here : http://sourceforge.net/projects/aranym/ ... z/download

FreeBSD Port I got from this page : http://phoenix.inf.upol.cz/~opichals/aranym/

The actual download : http://phoenix.inf.upol.cz/~opichals/ar ... D-port.tgz

You don't have to put much effort into it. This is a really old package anyways. I'm just curious where the source file belongs in the scheme of things so I know for future reference.

I did remove the distinfo because of this and created a new one and I had it start compile, but I had 16 error that I have no Idea how to fix.

I may join the ARANYM mailing list and ask for assistance there. I was just hoping that I could download the FreeBSD Ports plus Source and get it to compile.

Thanks for your help on this.
