I have been using Arduino with no probs on my PC but have encountered endless problems on my iBook running OSX (10.2.8). Friends with much better Arduino / Computer skills have also failed to get it working.

The major error message is when trying to upload to the board, is as follows:
dyld: /Users/fredgutt/Desktop/arduino-0003/tools/avr/bin/avr-gcc can't open library: /usr/lib/libiconv.2.dylib  (No such file or directory, errno = 2)

I have also tried to bypass this by having a code already uploaded to the board (from my PC) but this also results in error messages.

Can anyone help me? I would really like to get Arduino working on my Mac!

Thanks in advance!


i had the same problem, which is that the arduino software cant access some of the libraries on 10.2...... i think mellis or someone was looking into it, but i just upgraded to 10.3 instead.

hope this helps.



Thanks Bod - gonna upgrade to Panther / Tiger - I imagine either of these will work fine?

Thanks again.


i havent uploaded anything to the board as yet, i only upgraded to 10.3 (panther) last night, but i loaded a program into the IDE and it compiled ok, with no error messages, so i recon that should do it.
