I am currently using MacPorts on Lion but thinking of switching to Homebrew.
- There is a suggestion that installing to
/usr/localcauses problems and
~/.homebrewwould be an alternative. Can I instead use something like
/homebrewwith the same permissions as
/usr/localso other users on my machine can also use the programs?
- Will I have to rebuild anything (auctex, scipy) which are built with gcc from MacPorts?
- As long as I add the Homebrew path (
/hombrew) ahead of
/opts/localof MacPorts, can I leave MacPorts installed?
I am aware of the other posts on this exchange forum regarding coexistence of the two package managers, but do not feel they address these questions specifically. Thanks.
