mknrndll not working on Yosemite

Post by emoore » Mon Dec 01, 2014 9:50 am

I am using NEURON for a graduate school class, and am not that familiar with how it works. However, I have followed all the instructions given in the course, read all the FAQs/tutorials online, and can't seem to figure out what is going on, and neither can the TA or instructor in my class. I have OSX Yosemite (Version 10.10.1). I have downloaded the most recent Xcode. I also was told to download a program called XQuartz/X11. None of this has changed the error, and everyone else in my class with a mac is getting it to work. The gui does work, just not the compilation process. I'm using the 32bit version of NEURON.

When I drag and drop the folder containing all the mod/hoc files I need to compile onto the mknrndll icon, I get these messages in the terminal:

What could the problem be? Thanks!

I didn't know a 32 bit version was available for OS X. Suggest you uninstall that and try either the most recent alpha dmg
http://www.neuron.yale.edu/ftp/neuron/v ... 10.9.5.dmg
or get and compile the latest source code from the mercurial repository as described here
