MacPorts

LEG has a MacPorts mirror for OSX users. To configure it, install macports (you’ll need XCode installed) and then follow the following configuration instructions: Edit /opt/local/etc/macports/macports.conf and change the following lines to:

rsync_server        ftp.leg.uct.ac.za
rsync_dir           pub/packages/macports/release/base/

Then edit /opt/local/etc/macports/sources.conf, comment out the existing source and add the following:

rsync://ftp.leg.uct.ac.za/pub/packages/macports/release/ports/ [default]

You should now be able to verify that MacPorts is using LEG, by updating it:

$ sudo port -v sync
$ sudo port -v selfupdate

You should see LEG banners go past, before it downloads files.
