Trying to include 0mq for java external: UnsatisfiedLinkError wrong architecture

July 30, 2012 | 11:04 pm


I’m trying to incorporate the zero mq library ( in order to receive some data from another process. The simple java program I’ve written to interface with zero mq runs fine on its own, but once I try to run it in max, I get the following error:

"java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /usr/local/lib/libjzmq.0.dylib: no suitable image found. Did find: /usr/local/lib/libjzmq.0.dylib: mach-o, but wrong architecture"

I’ve searched the forums, and see this error message appearing when people try to run ppc binaries on intel macs, but I know this isn’t the case for me, as the library works fine when not run from within max. I believe the libraries I’m using are 64 bit, however. Could this be the problem? Can anyone offer insights into how to fix it?

Try doing a

file /usr/local/lib/libjzmq.0.dylib

which should tell you what architectures the library supports.

file libjzmq.0.dylib produces:
libjzmq.0.dylib: Mach-O 64-bit dynamically linked shared library x86_64

So it is a 64 bit library. Can max 6 not handle a 64 bit java library?

Max 6 is AFAIK still 32-bit, so the JVM it loads will be also.

Isn’t there a 32-bit Zero MQ library?

Hi Ryutaro, did you manage to get the ZMQ into max yet?

Would you mind explaining a bit about the process? I am trying to get a data stream from a python program into max. The data is flowing nicely, and I can see it in the terminal window if I import ZMQ to there, but I don’t know how to get it into Max!

Did you use the mxj object to write the java script and import to max? If so, would you mind explaining the script to me? I’m a java noob…
