BAD CPU Error in Mac when running command chimera.uchime


I am new using mothur, but I am running through an error in my Mac.

Everything was running well until the command chimera.uchime.

Then an error start occurring: “Bad CPU type in Executable. Cannot open file.”

My mac OS Catalina. system 10.15.4.

Any suggestions on how to fix it?


Thanks for reporting this issue. The problem was with the uchime executable. I rebuilt uchime for OS X and uploaded it to our 1.44.1 release. You can download it here,
