    Restore Time Machine Backup from Third Party NAS 

    Upgraded my hard disk, and restored from a Time Machine backup. Used DiskMakerX to create Mavericks install USB disk a while ago.

    Before doing anything it’s handy to have:

    1. Username, password, and IP number of the NAS (especially if helping someone else)
    2. Lots of time. Once it starts restoring we can leave it running. To get it into perspective, my 200GB backup was restored in 13 hours on a 100Mbps connection. No gigabit connection here.

    To make sure the restore utility finds the backup, open terminal after booting from the installation media:

    cd /Volumes
    mkdir TimeMachine
    mount -t afp afp://<username>:<password>@<ip_address>/Volumes/TimeMachine
    hdid /Volumes/TimeMachine/<backup_name>.sparsebundle

    Close terminal, go to the restore utility and the time machine backup should be there.

    Checksum Mismatch 

    Using OpenDNS

    sudo port upgrade outdated
    ---> Fetching archive for apr
    Warning: Your DNS servers incorrectly claim to know the address of nonexistent hosts. This may cause checksum mismatches for some ports.

    Upgrading, received an error:

    The file has been moved to: /opt/local/var/macports/distfiles/file/file-5.15.tar.gz.html
    Error: org.macports.checksum for port libmagic returned: Unable to verify file checksums

    Downloaded the file manually and the upgrade continues. Removed OpenDNS from my dnsmasq.

    MacPorts on Mavericks 

    Attempt to upgrade MacPorts (to 2.2.1) after Mavericks failed:

    checking for Tcl configuration...
    configure: error: Can't find Tcl configuration definitions

    Remedy: Install command line tools

    xcode-select --install

    The install command line tools button is no longer there in Xcode.

    Reference: Autodetection Tcl config variables fail on 10.9
