Installing Imagemagick leads to weird error involving OpenCL

Here's what I did to fix this.

  1. Booted up my old machine running OSX 10.6.
  2. Copied /System/Library/Frameworks/OpenCL.framework/Versions/A/Libraries/libclparser.dylib from 10.6 computer into the same folder on 10.7.

Now things seem to be working fine.

Note: the file can also be found here:

If you're using Homebrew, try the following command:

brew doctor

to diagnose the common problems.

One of it could be to remove DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH variable from your ~/.profile if you have it.

Or you have to re-install libtool by:

brew reinstall libtool --universal && brew unlink libtool && brew link libtool

The top-voted answer on (minus the first two steps) worked for me — so basically just

  1. brew uninstall imagemagick
  2. brew update
  3. brew install imagemagick
  4. (optionally) brew doctor and follow the instructions

I did have to manually delete some files, but brew doctor tells you which ones. The order of uninstall, update, install, doctor probably isn't important.
