biftool on Mac error

When trying to run biftool on Mac it returns the following error:

dyld: lazy symbol binding failed: Symbol not found: __ZN5boost6system19get_system_categoryEv
Referenced from: /usr/bin/biftool
Expected in: /opt/local/lib/libboost_system.dylib

dyld: Symbol not found: __ZN5boost6system19get_system_categoryEv
Referenced from: /usr/bin/biftool
Expected in: /opt/local/lib/libboost_system.dylib

Trace/BPT trap


Boost from MacPorts has been installed:

MacMini:~ $ locate libboost_system.dylib
/opt/local/lib/libboost_system.dylib
/opt/local/var/macports/software/boost/1.44.0_1/opt/local/lib/libboost_system.dylib


Any help is appreciated...

Re: biftool on Mac error

No suggestions, eh?

OK. Is anyone out there using the biftool on a Mac?

If so, could you tell me what version of boost is installed on your MacPorts?

$ port installed | grep boost
boost @1.44.0_1 (active)
boost-jam @3.1.18_0 (active)


Thanks for any help.

Re: biftool on Mac error

I have plans to bring a bif tool to the Mac. If all goes well I should have one ready this year.

The windows bif creator will be rolled out 1st quarter. First version may not suit everyones need but I will be taking requests for changes to accomodate others.

UPDATE: Windows Tool has released. Contact me for details and where to download.

Re: biftool on Mac error

I have this exact same error. I suspect that you might be able to fix with a downgrade to boost 1.49, but I am still looking into this. It would great to be able to develop for Roku on a Mac though.

Correction, it is not the EXACT error:

$ biftool
dyld: Symbol not found: __ZNK5boost15program_options16validation_error4whatEv

Expected in: /usr/local/lib/libboost_program_options.dylib
in /usr/local/bin/biftool
