dyld:Library not loaded


Library not loaded error when running application. When running an application built with the Intel compiler, you may see an error of the form:

dyld:Library not loaded:libsvml.dylib
reason: image not found


This error occurs when the Intel dynamic libraries cannot be located.


To resolve this, follow these steps:

  • From the Groups & files panel expand Executables.
  • Select the executable, Info, and navigate to the Arguments dialog box.
  • Define or modify the DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to include the path /opt/intel/cc/10.1.xxx/lib
  • From the command line using the bash shell, execute this command:
  • export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=$DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH:/opt/intel/fce/10.1.xxx/lib
