I was in the process of installing Wine on terminal (via Macports), and encountered this hurdle while "computing dependencies":

"---> Verifying checksums for xorg-libpthread-stubs

Error: org.macports.checksum for port xorg-libpthread-stubs returned: libpthread-stubs-0.3.tar.bz2 does not exist in /opt/local/var/macports/distfiles/xorg-libpthread-stubs

Error: Failed to install xorg-libpthread-stubs Please see the log file for port xorg-libpthread-stubs for details:


Not sure how to proceed from here. Am far from adept at this.

For Wine under OS X I use Wine_1.7.36.dmg from "Wine.app Downloads" on kronenberg.org and XQuartz and both install and work nicely without the need to use MacPorts.

  • Thank you. If I may ask I follow-up question: Would I have to download XQuartz stable or development? Does the PC software (in this case a game) still have to be installed via Terminal?

  • As a general rule, I always download the stable versions of whatever I'm downloading. As to installing WinApps, I usually just run the setup.exe (double-click it in Finder) and it loads both XQuartz and Wine automatically to then proceed with the install as if it were being done under Windows.
