MacOS 10.9.5 Mavericks - error message when attempting copy to Google Drive

Hi folks - using rclone for the first time:

MacOS 10.9.5
rclone v1.52.2

  • os/arch: darwin/amd64
  • go version: go1.14.4

I was able to download, unzip rclone into a directory
I was able to create a remote connection to my Google Drive Shared folder
I'm able to list files/folders on this Google Drive remote with "lsd"

My goal is to know copy files from a local SAN to a folder on Google Drive with the following command:

./rclone copy /Volumes/Live/Working\ Data/In\ Progress/ WORKING: --bwlimit=8650k --fast-list --size-only

Unfortunately, I get the following error.

dyld: lazy symbol binding failed: Symbol not found: _fdopendir$INODE64
Referenced from: /Applications/rclone/./rclone
Expected in: flat namespace

I suspect perhaps an incompatibility with MacOS Mavericks 10.9.5?

Yes, the OS needs to support GO and that is way old.

Way old indeed, was there ever a single binary installer of rclone for MacOS 10.9.5? I believe after Google'ing a bit that as of Go 1.13 only MacOS 10.10+ is supported.

You check the releases thread and just go back until you find one that works. It would be an old version.

1.40 seemed to do the trick!
