issues with mac 10.2.8

i might have missed something obvious, but here goes anyway....

i've been using arduino 003 and my new usb board(previously a home made serial board) with no problems on OSX 10.3, until some thieving monkey stole my ibook.

until i can replace it, i downloaded the software to use on my old 600mhz imac running 10.2.8 but i cant upload a program to the board. i have installed the drivers, and checked everything i can think off a million times, but to no avail.

when i try to upload, the TX and RX leds flash twice, and i get this message in the IDE...

dyld: /Applications/arduino-0003/tools/avr/bin/avr-gcc can't open library: /usr/lib/libiconv.2.dylib (No such file or directory, errno = 2)

Atmel AVR ATmega8 is found. Error: No such file or directory Firmware Version: 1.18 Firmware Version: 1.18 -> /Users/myname/Documents/Arduino/bod_serial_read_basic/applet/bod_serial_read_basic.hex

talk about kicking a man while he's down.....

help me please!!!!!! :(

cheers in advance,



I think the issue might be that the tools have been compiled for a more recent version of OSX and when running on 10.2.8 they cant find some libraries...

i'll have to do some tests

thats ok, thought it was just me. i'll need to see if i can upgrade the OS on this old beast of mine.
