    I've just downloaded the latest release of MacPorts for Mac and installed the standard .kpg

    Once finished, I opened up a terminal and typed:

    Code:
    man port
    To which I received:

    Code:
    No manual entry for port
    How do I install this correctly? Have I done something wrong? I've followed the main instructions on the MacPorts website to which it clearly isn't working.

    That's because your shell hasn't been told where to look for the man pages for macports. Checkout the following link to fix the problem: http://guide.macports.org/#installing.shell Just put both the export PATH and export MANPATH lines in your /etc/profile or /etc/bashrc to make this a system default for every user. If this doesn't work you might want to delete ~/.bashrc (or ~/.profile if you have that file) or edit it and put the above lines in that file.
