Hello everyone,
I can't configure port options any more.
All I get is "Options unchanged", tried it on the ports with bunches of options, like multimedia/ffmpeg.
What can be the cause? Apart from ports-mgmt/dialog4ports, because I have the latest version installed.
Neither are there any problems writing to /var/db/ports. But what else?

It's 13.0-RELEASE and latest git ports tree.

Output of truss `make config` (run as root!):
Code:
truss: execvp ===>: No such file or directory
truss: Unable to enable LWP events for pid 52824: No such process

Ok, force rebuilt ports-mgmt/dialog4ports and all is fine again.
I think I DID rebuilt/reinstall all ports when transitioning to 13.0-someversion. Looks like this port somehow escaped the change...

I'm not sure if it's a bug or intentional... But I have to close those dialogs with alt-o, if I hit enter, the options are always unchanged.

Something must be wrong in your setup. In my case they are changed, I just checked. Maybe write permissions to /var/db/ports or something.

My setup is as default as it gets.
OK, there is one other thing you may have missed with those config dialogs. It has 2 buttons: "Cancel" and "OK". So, before you hit "Enter", make sure you have OK selected. Simple, but I myself have tripped here in the past :)
