Homebrew errors (solved)
hi just found out about the app homebrew (hb) click here. is it worth using it in ML.
I assume that it is an old app from osx 10.5 and earlier so not needed these days.
it looks like a great app
I have osx 10.8.3 and when i run it i get these errors.
$ brew doctor Warning: Some directories in /usr/local/share/man aren't writable. This can happen if you "sudo make install" software that isn't managed by Homebrew. If a brew tries to add locale information to one of these directories, then the install will fail during the link step.

Consider amending your PATH variable so it contains: /usr/local/sbin
Edit: fond a solution to install hb
1. install xcode from the app store. (this contains the development libraries needed by Homebrew)
2. then in a terminal type $ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.c...xcl/homebrew/go)"
thats it you should now have hb installed. if you see warnings you can ignore them (these errors are to help diagnose any problems that may occur)
I also found a gui for hb click here it would be nice if it had a description of what each app was and does.

Homebrew is a package manager that is best used by people who do not share their machine with anyone else, and primarily use their machine for software development. It is mainly used to install various UNIX-type programs, both those that work in Terminal, at the command line, and those with a graphical interface, via X11.
For everyone else, MacPorts is the better solution.
In general, on OS X, if you have to ask whether something like Homebrew is needed, then you don't need it. It's not for the casual user.

true, but for people who want to install things like pianobar, it is really helpful having brew / ports...
i had macports but got fed up with it, so went for brew instead...
i'm just trying to figure out how to remove the dylib files that are causing errors
