Imx Fix in my experience

Even MacOSX users can install and run mod_mp3 (which is an MP3 server mod that piggy backs on the Apache server). The maintainers even make OSX specific downloads available, but they are, of course, several versions behind (and are pre-compiled). So, when trying to compile the current version for OSX (with better ID3 support), I ran into this error...
/usr/bin/ld: /usr/lib/libSystem.dylib load command 6 unknown cmd field
That error is suggested to be a problem with my DevTools installation, and more to the point, old DevTools on an up to date OSX installation. Now, why would I have old DevTools on top of the latest version of the OS? Well, I bought OSX 10.0 which came with the 10.0 (zero!) DevTools. System upgrades do NOT include the tools update. You have to download it separately from Apple, which can be done pretty simply...
  • Go to
  • Register for the free account
  • click "Download Software" (on the left)
  • click "Mac OS X" (on the left)
  • click the appropriate Download button
The file I need is over 200 megs in size, and I don't even know if it's going help me successfully compile mod_mp3 version 0.37. The things we do to get software installed can be pretty damn silly. And configuring it can be even worse.
