Problems installing program through terminal
1 Attachment(s)

I'm quite new to Mac, so forgive me if i sound like a newb :-)
I wish to install the Deluge BitTorrent client. First of all I installed Macports and made it run smooth. But then I ran into a problem when I should install Deluge. I can post the log, and then I would appreciate any help:

Hope that someone knows what to do :Smirk:

Why are you installing through Terminal?
You're making things more difficult than they need to be.
There are plenty of bitTorrent apps that are simple drag & drop installs. That, or they come with an installer that will do this for you.

My advice would be to look for one of those.

Some reasons
First of all - thank you for the quick answer :)

First of all - I know plenty of BitTorrent programs with a single .dmg-file that you mount and install from. But the reason why I'm so interested in getting this to work is that I'm going to know the "world in terminal". I'm a chessplayer, and just installed x-board through terminal, so therefore i wanted to know why i can't get this to work. I have to work with chess-engines in terminal too, so it's just to learn :)

But maybe you are right :Smirk:

in the log, there are several libs that are missing, fix the missing libs, then try to reinstall. It should work
