I'm trying to do the following

identify somefile.jpg

and I get the following:


dyld: Library not loaded: /opt/local/lib/libfontconfig.1.dylib
  Referenced from: /usr/local/bin/identify
  Reason: no suitable image found.  Did find:
    /opt/local/lib/libfontconfig.1.dylib: mach-o, but wrong architecture
Trace/BPT trap

Do you know how to resolve this? BTW, I have Mac OS X Snow Leopard

identify is part of MacPorts or fink or similar. You probably built your code on one architecture, migrated to a new machine, but didn't rebuild your MacPorts/fink/whatever code. Do a "clean" and re-build everything.

For macports first try:

$ sudo port selfupdate

If that doesn't work them it might be easiest to just uninstall macports and start again. See for details of how to do this.

Thanks Paul. Could you please advise how to clean and rebuild everything? I use MacPorts – Tam Jul 26 '10 at 7:43
@Tam: I've added info for macports to the answer above. – Paul R Jul 26 '10 at 16:16
Thanks. That seems to have resolved it! it might have been that I recovered my Leopard System from Time Machine to Snow Leopard and it copied old files. – Tam Jul 27 '10 at 16:09
