Once again thanks for all the feedback everyone.
Well, I think we are getting closer to the real issue. I went ahead and made
the symbolic link as suggested by Erick.
robertg's-computer:/usr robertg$ ls -l
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 10 Apr 26 22:31 X11 -> /usr/X11R6
drwxr-xr-x 4 root wheel 136 Apr 26 22:30 X11R6
I still receive the same error as before: dyld: Library not loaded:
I looked in the directory, and sure enough there is no libfreetype.6.dylib,
but there is a libfreetype.6.3.dylib
I tried a symbolic link between 6 and 6.3, but it started complaining about
Thanks again for all the help.
