OSError: dlopen(libSystem.dylib, 6): image not found

Just updated my Mac to El Capitan 10.11.
I am trying to run Django 1.6 with Celery 3.1 and I'm getting this error now:

OSError: dlopen(libSystem.dylib, 6): image not found


Everything worked fine before.
Can't find a solution to fix this. I've seen this thread but doesn't work:
"OSError: dlopen(libSystem.dylib, 6): image not found" (OS X + macports + Celery 3.1.7)

I didn't have any DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH before. I tried to:

export DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/lib":$DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH


but Python can't find the Library despite it being located under "/usr/lib"

Anyone has had a problem like this?

Answer

I suspect (but can't confirm) the System Integrity Protection (SIP) of OSX El Capitan is preventing access to your /usr/lib folder.

It would be extreme and defeating the purpose of the security feature, but you could try disabling SIP by booting into the OS X Recovery partition, executing csrutil disable and rebooting...atleast until another option / work-around can be found.
