missing vecLib.framework

March 1, 2007 | 3:18 pm

hi all
i was recently working on a patch that calls for pitch detection and
thought i would check out pitch~ and analyzer~ as alternatives to
fiddle~, but i see that they both call for vecLib.framework which
doesn’t seem to be installed on my g4 powerbook 1.67 running 10.4.8.
i did a little trolling around and found that some combo updaters
delete this file, and i wonder if there is a way to install it
without doing an os reinstall. any ideas?
thanks for the tips
bruce

I’ve been helping Bruce off the list, and though it would be of general interest to post these links:

http://lists.apple.com/archives/PerfOptimization-dev/2006/Apr/msg00005.html
and

http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/macosxserver1048comboupdateppc.html

Since I already have these frameworks, I have not been able to this advice. If somebody does solve this problem, it would be of great service to the community if they would post their solution here.

Thanks,

mz

i guess we can continue this here….

michael (and anyone) a couple of questions:
first, i should point out that the first link below is bad (leave off
the "and" between the lines.) this link points to the files where i
got the info about it being a known problem and that running the
updater generally fixes it.
the second link points to the os x SERVER 10.4.8 combo updater and
what i think is needed is the osx 10.4.8 combo updater, please
correct me if i’m wrong. however, if vecLib.framework is only
installed by the server updater then let us know.
i’m downloading the 10.4.8 combo updater now, but isn’t the combo
updater what caused all that java mischief several months ago? or was
that an earlier 10.4 combo updater?
cheers

There was a problem exactly like yours with the 10.4.6 update that was *solved* by the combo update. This is one thread:

http://www.cycling74.com/forums/index.php?t=msg&goto=67978&rid=0&srch=combo+fft#msg_67978

aka http://tinyurl.com/2fwpge

The PPC 10.4.8 combo update is here:

http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/macosx1048comboupdateppc.html

or

http://tinyurl.com/zm4t6

But I still don’t know if it will 1) Install the Frameworks you need, and 2) Fix the problem with analyser~, et al.

That lib should never get blown away… are you sure that /System/
Library/Frameworks/vecLib.framework is missing?

/System/Library/Frameworks/vecLib.framework

vecLib.framework is located in the Accelerate.framework:

"file:///System/Library/Frameworks/Accelerate.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/"

mark you are correct, it is there. stupid me did not think that it
would be invisible to "find" and the file path i searched manually
before was /Library/Frameworks not /System/Library/Frameworks – i was
led astray by a post i read on the developers forum. thanks for the
tip. now to get back to figuring out why i’m not getting analyzer~ to
work…
cheers

I may post this separately but I have not got this framework thing on my mac

I have 10.4.8 on a G5 imac (pre intel) running maxmsp 4.5.5 and jitter 1.5.2

I have checked in the file path suggested and there is no framework file as detailed in your post. I am trying to get analyzer~ to work but it comes up as bogus

Have you solved this issue now?

adrian
i made two mistakes: one was doing a search using "find" – the
vecLib.framework will not show up in "find" without setting it to
look for hidden and/or system files. my second mistake was looking
in /Library/Frameworks and not /System/Library/Frameworks – which is
where i found it. however, i was also not getting throughput with
analyzer~ (which is why i assumed that vec.Lib wasn’t there) and i
haven’t revisited it yet to explore more.
hope this helps
