ERROR: /usr/local/bin/ypops: Not a directory.

Postby Juvenaly on January 16th, 2005, 11:39 pm

Hi all,

I seem to be a real dork. I followed all of the intall directions to the letter, all seemed to work. When I run the ps command I get the following info,

PID TT STAT TIME COMMAND
778 std S 0:00.19 -tcsh (tcsh)

But when I type in:

/usr/local/bin/ypops

I get an error that says:

/usr/local/bin/ypops: Not a directory.

I am a total unix newbie I was lucky to get this far, but I am really at a dead end here as to what to do to get this to work at this point. Any help is appreciated.

The error message indicates that ypops does not get installed at the pre-defined place. How far did you go along the instructions in 'mac_readme103104.rtf'? Do you keep an eye on the terminal output when you double click my installation script 'install_ypops_script.command'? What did it say?

I can install ypops but cannot get it to run

When I install ypops using the line-by-line instructions I can get it to install and have ypopsrc in my home directory. However, when I try to run the program via the command /usr/local/bin/ypops, I get the error

Buschs-Computer:~ andrewbusch$ /usr/local/bin/ypops
-bash: /usr/local/bin/ypops: Not a directory

Based on the previous discussions, it means that ypops was not installed in the correct place. (Strange because I followed the directions to a T.)
When I try to use the install_ypops_script.command I get several errors.

Please enter the path to the folder of yahoopops_mac_mmddyy
you can type in manually, or drag the folder icon from Finder into Terminal.
Delete the last space, if you use drag-n-drop.
the path = ?
/Users/andrewbusch/Desktop/yahoopops_mac_103104
checking...
OK. This path is valid.
----------
begin copying files:
copy ypops
cp: /usr/local/bin is not a directory
copy ypops.bin
cp: /usr/local/bin is not a directory
copy ypopsrc
chmod: /usr/local/bin/ypops: Not a directory
chmod: /usr/local/bin/ypops.bin: Not a directory
done.
If you have to edit the configuration file ypopsrc,
it is locaated at /usr/local/share

This script runs successfully. Enjoy!
logout
[Process completed]

Any help would be appreciated.

New to iMac and YPOPS!
The following is what my terminal says:

jan-russells-computer:~/Downloads/yahoopops_mac janrussell$ sudo cp ypops /usr/local/bin/
cp: directory /usr/local/bin does not exist
jan-russells-computer:~/Downloads/yahoopops_mac janrussell$

Downloaded and installed Fink 0.8.1.

What am I doing wrong?
