Play World of Warcraft via SOCKS or SSH tunnel
Authored by: bravekd on Sep 08, '06 10:30:57AM

Can't seem to type that in Terminal, after I type the first line you gave us I got:

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

#1) Respect the privacy of others.
#2) Think before you type.
#3) With great power comes great responsibility.

Password:

And I can't type anymore in that window. Any idea? Thank you.

Oh - you can do more - the Password you are being prompted for is your account password, and it is not going to be echoed back to you (you won't see anything, but you can type). Once you have authenticated, you'll get a normal command prompt back.

Be forewarned - once you've autheticated as a superuser, you are no longer protected by the system from making changes that can seriously mess things up.

Play World of Warcraft via SOCKS or SSH tunnel

I know that this isn't the best place to be saying this, but whenever I try to download Darwinports 1.3.1 it freezes on "Running Darwinports Installer Script". It does not move any further than that. I have tried to find the solution online, or to write them but my email got sent back to me and I can't find anything for my problem. I am downloading the 10.4 version since that is what I have, but even with the 10.3 version it doesnt work. Thank you, I am fresh out of ideas.

If you haven't gotten it to work yet, just be patient. The script takes a long time to process and doesn't output any feedback to tell you how far it is. Don't terminate it or anything. Rest assured it's working!

FYI DarwinPorts is now MacPortsand the version is up to 1.4.0.
