I am having some trouble with the pyusb module. I have narrowed down the problem to a single line, and have created a small example script to replicate the error. #!/usr/bin/env python """ This module was created to isolate the problem in the pyusb package. Operating system: Mac OS 10.6.3 Python Version: 2.6.4 libusb 1.0.8 has been successfully installed using: sudo port install libusb I have also tried modifying /opt/local/etc/macports/macports.conf to force the i386 architecture instead of x86_64. """ from ctypes import * import ctypes.util libname = ctypes.util.find_library('usb-1.0') print 'libname: ', libname l = CDLL(libname, RTLD_GLOBAL) # RESULT: #libname: /usr/local/lib/libusb-1.0.dylib #Traceback (most recent call last): # File "./pyusb_problem.py", line 7, in <module> # l = CDLL(libname, RTLD_GLOBAL) # File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/ctypes/__init__.py", line 353, in __init__ # self._handle = _dlopen(self._name, mode) #OSError: dlopen(/usr/local/lib/libusb-1.0.dylib, 10): no suitable image found. Did find: # /usr/local/lib/libusb-1.0.dylib: mach-o, but wrong architecture # End of File This same script runs on Ubuntu 10.04 successfully. I have tried building the libusb module (directly from source AND through macports) for 32-bit (i386) instead of x86_64 (default for OS 10.6), but I receive the same error. Thank-you in advance for your help!
