I'd like to cleanly remove all changes made by MacPorts as well as MacPorts itself, to try my luck with homebrew. How can I do that?
The MacPort documentation advises to use your Terminal and type:
sudo port -fp uninstall installed
and with this command, all remaining items will be deleted:
sudo rm -rf /opt/local sudo rm -rf /Applications/DarwinPorts sudo rm -rf /Applications/MacPorts sudo rm -rf /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.macports.* sudo rm -rf /Library/Receipts/DarwinPorts*.pkg sudo rm -rf /Library/Receipts/MacPorts*.pkg sudo rm -rf /Library/StartupItems/DarwinPortsStartup sudo rm -rf /Library/Tcl/darwinports1.0 sudo rm -rf /Library/Tcl/macports1.0 sudo rm -rf ~/.macports
Warning: Don't run a
sudo command, especially a
rm -rf one, unless you know what it's doing.
