Thanks, but isn't the issue simply a matter of mismatched versions  called by the .dylibs referenced? Or is there more to it?

Getting Denemo working for recent Mac OS has been the subject of a recent mailing list discussion: the result is that there are instructions for doing this here:


I understand that there is some further work to do to make this into a MacPorts package, which hopefully someone with a Mac will be able to do shortly.

after installing and jumping through the usual Apple hoops, app fails with an apparent .dylib mismatch error: 

Dyld Error Message:
  Library not loaded: /opt/local/lib/libpng16.16.dylib
  Referenced from: /Applications/Denemo.app/Contents/Resources/lib/librsvg-2.2.dylib
  Reason: Incompatible library version: librsvg-2.2.dylib requires version 46.0.0 or later, but libpng16.16.dylib provides version 45.0.0

Is there a correct dylib somewhere that I can drop into the resources directory of the app?
