I had a problem using pyode (from cvs) on MacOS X using python
2.4 and ode 0.7 installed via darwinports. The setup.py was able to
build and install pyode successfully, but I could not import ode:
>>> import ode
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
ImportError: Failure linking new module:
/opt/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/ode.so: Library not loaded:
libode.dylib Referenced from:
Reason: image not found
Looking at the ode.so in site-packages shows that libode.dylib was
linked in with a relative path:
% otool -L /opt/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/ode.so
libode.dylib (compatibility version 0.0.0, current version 0.0.0)
/usr/lib/libstdc++.6.dylib (compatibility version 7.0.0,
current version 7.4.0)
/usr/lib/libgcc_s.1.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current
/usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0,
current version 88.3.4)
If I diddled PYLD_LIBRARY_PATH, I could get ode to import, but it
broke other things in the process. Ultimately I was able to fix it be
changing the link to libode.dylib to an absolute path.
% sudo install_name_tool -change libode.dylib
I'm not sure the best way to fixup setup.py et al to do this
automagically (i.e., just prevent the unqualified link in the first
place). If you do great, if not I can do some more digging and figure
Ideally pyode would have a darwinport itself, though you'll need to
release what's in cvs first for that to be practical ;^)
Out of curiousity what is the state of the version in cvs? How close
to stable/release ready would you consider it?
Thanks much for this package, I'm a newbie to ode but it looks like a
