comment Mac OS X Mavericks fails with disk corruption error
Thanks Buscar, I might try the cmd-r and restore (online) function tomorrow when I have more time. As for enabling the Debug under Disk Utility, I might give that a skip since this is a production laptop (i.e. I use it for work), and I don't want to do anything that would cause it to explode.... ;)

comment Mac OS X Mavericks fails with disk corruption error
@Buscar웃 - Yes, there is a folder called 'Incompatible Software' in the root directory. It contains three copies of Flip4Mac, which I downloaded a couple of years ago. Also, there are two hidden partitions that contain EFI and Restore. I found them using R-Studio, which I purchased last year. Was not sure how to find the hidden partitions using other (recommended) methods....

George - Appreciate the feedback, however, this does not answer my question completely. I suppose my question is whether or not the installation process did resolve the corruption on the disk drive. If so, where would I find a lost+found folder (if any)?

comment MacPort - jslint fails to install due to incompatible spidermonkey installation
Thanks for that! It did the trick! Was able to upgrade spidermonkey by enforcing its variants and, by doing so, was able to successfully install jslint. Once again, thank you!!!!

comment Advice about eBook Readers for Mac/PC
I don't consider ADE a problem. The problem is only being able to use ADE to view the file. Insofar as using other viewers, note that I have purchased Adobe Creative Suite 5 (not for this reason) and, while InDesign allows one to export a document in ePub format, there is no way to import a document in ePub format! Being an Adobe product, I would have expected some sort of compatibility without having to download a separate (albeit Adobe) product.

Unfortunately, this eBook requires Digital Editions in order to be able to view it.

I have to admit, it is the first time I have seen DRM placed on a PDF, which unfortunately does require Digital Editions to view it. Another eBook that I purchased last year allowed me to download it in three different formats: Plain PDF, ePub and MOBI.

I downloaded the eBook from www.ebooks.com. The format is PDF encrypted with Digital Rights Management (whatever that is). I will update the question to include this and other information that I have been able to retrieve about the file.

comment Many Compile Warnings while Installing MacPorts
I tried looking for some log files under /opt/local/var/macports/logs to provide as example, but none were there except something from texlive. Is there any other place I could look?

comment Is it safe to upgrade all outdated port when upgrading from Snow Leopard to Lion?
You also need to make sure that you have the latest Xcode installed on Lion, otherwise MacPorts will fail to build. This is mentioned in MacPorts FAQ.
