    If you have emacs, the Termcap database file on your Mac port cannot be opened on your PC, then hopefully this guide should help.

    The linked port of emacs does not run on MacPorts (Emacs 23.2.1) on
    OS X Leopard snow.

    This error has already been reported by MacPorts, but there is still no
    action to fix it, so I would like to try this tool to fix it myself.

    The first thing you need to do is figure out where emacs is looking for this
    termcap file for whatever reason.

    Can anyone tell me what filenames and directories
    can I look for this file in?

    Second, if it’s missing, where can I find a functionally appropriate termcap
    database file? Alternative: Is there a way to reject this

    P.S. The Emacs that comes with OS X is loaded, but it’s usually version
    22, I installed the MacPorts port of Emacs because I needed version

    emacs cannot open termcap database file mac port

    Publishing on kj
    Emacs port 23 (emacs.2.Starts 1) provided that MacPorts by does not work on
    OS X Snow Leopard.”Emacs Termcap file: cannot be opened” <

    My guess is that the directory that emacs is looking for the terminfo
    file is very hard on. When he didn’t find it, he just tried the old term.

  • If that doesn’t work, find your own terminfo file, perhapsoh, it’s related
    partially to the libncurses package.

    Try installing libncurse-dev via MacPort first, and then rebuilding emacs23,
    then it should probably work for everyone without this problem. With

    emacs: “Could not open termcap data file”< br> This error MacPorts already knows about it, there are no steps to fix it, so I want to try to fix it myself.
    First basic thing to determine where it is literally, is Emacs looking for a termcap file for it? I want to determine if I want it to be missing or not at all,
    or just there, but not available to emacs for some reason.
    Can someone give me all these directories and filenames so I can investigate the file?
    Secondly, suppose< br>this is an absence, can I find exactly one termcap
    job database file? If not, is there a way around this
    Thank you!
    P.S. The Emacs that comes with the OS starts x with up, but it’s all version
    22 still installed in the MacPorts port of Emacs because I needed version

    you should probably be fine without this problem.

    I have found that the problem has been solved (thanks to these tips, I
    got your answers). I’m posting the fix here for anyone
    who might be having this problem.

    The following extract from the application’s config.log file shows the root
    of the problem:

    configure:20977: checks from tparm -lncurses

    You will see the following paths: /sw/lib, /sw/include and. These are old
    packages introduced a long time ago by another with a system,
    the Fink grouping.

    The main problem is that MacPort looks for MacPorts
    ncurses when determining dependencies for Emacs and
    downloads the required versions as well, but then, during the main Emacs build period,
    probably doesn’t. make sure it actually works with the version!

    I don’t know how this type of path /sw/* ended up in some of the paths checked by the
    configurator. The full Config command
    doesn’t comment them at all:

    CPATH=’/opt/local/include’ -O2 cflags=’-pipe -mid-foot (arch X86_64′) CPPFLAGS=’-I/opt/local/include’ CXXFLAGS=’-pipe -arch -o2 x86_64′ LIBRARY_PATH=’/opt/local/lib’ MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=’10.6′ CXX=’/usr/bin/g++-4.2′ CC_PRINT_OPTIONS_FILE=’/opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_acports /.emeditors CC_PRINT_OPTIONS’ F90FLAGS=’-pipe -m64′ LDFLAGS=’-L/opt/local/lib -o2 -arch OBJC=’/usr/bin/gcc-4 x86_64′.2′ FCFLAGS=’-pipe -m64′ -o2 INSTALL=’/usr /bin/install -c’ -arch objcflags=’-pipe -o2 FFLAGS=’-pipe x86_64′ -m64′ -o2 CC_PRINT_OPTIONS=’YES’ CC=’/usr/bin/gcc-4.2 ‘ ./configure — with-dbus –prefix=/opt/local –no-gconf –no-libotf –no-m17n-flt –infodir –no-gpm /opt/local/share/info /emacs –with- x-toolkit=lucid –with-xpm –without-xaw3d –with-jpeg –with-tiff –with-gif –with-rsvg –with-png –with- xft

    …and user environment when installing
    mentioned /sw/lib, include not found:

    % (sudo printenv | grep -e /sw/lib -e /sw/include) || Mirroring “no match”
    no match

    This appears to be some kind of MacPorts leak, but I believe it
    which is impossible.

    In any case, once the problem was identified, the solution was

    % mv sudo /sw /sw_DISABLE
