#52 OSX install problem with libtiff version


I get this error when I try to run the new version of Pixie (1.4.5):

dyld: Library not loaded: /sw/lib/libtiff.3.dylib
Referenced from: /Applications/Graphics/Pixie/bin/rndr
Reason: Incompatible library version: rndr requires version 11.0.0 or
later, but libtiff.3.dylib provides version 3.6.0
Trace/BPT trap

I checked fink and it seems I do have the latest version of libtiff so
I'm not sure what the version 11.0.0 is refering to.

Can anyone provide a solution?

    Enable the use of fink's unstable tree. Most of this tree is simply newer
    versions that aren't as thoroughly tested. I switched to using fink's
    unstable tree version of libtiff as it has guaranteed LZW support and
    many bug fixes for float-valued tiffs especially. Once that's done, just
    run 'fink update libtiff' and you should be good to go.

    Sadly, there was a compatibility change between the older libtiffs and
    the new one in unstable (I hadn't realized this) which means that users
    have to go to the new version or one compatible with it. Previously any
    compatible version (which was most available packages) would do. If
    it's a real pain I can revert my build version back with the caveat that
    the bug fixes in the new version of libtiff will not be available.
