ld cannot find [files]

Post#1 by Rava » 02 Mar 2015, 12:58

trying to compile some c source, ld gave me some errors. Searching them seems to be issues dating back at least to 2004, all with missing files.

Here the errors:

Code: Select all

# 1st gcc run:/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-slackware-linux/4.8.2/../../../../x86_64-slackware-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lgcc_eh
/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-slackware-linux/4.8.2/../../../../x86_64-slackware-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lpthread
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

# 2nd gcc run:
/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-slackware-linux/4.8.2/../../../../x86_64-slackware-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lgcc_eh
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

# 3rd gcc run:
/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-slackware-linux/4.8.2/../../../../x86_64-slackware-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lgcc_eh
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
The program I tried compiling is unhide-20121229

The gcc lines that created the errors are from its README.TXT and are these:

Code: Select all

gcc -Wall -O2 --static -pthread unhide-linux*.c unhide-output.c -o unhide-linux

gcc -Wall -O2 --static unhide_rb.c -o unhide_rb

gcc -Wall -O2 --static unhide-tcp.c unhide-tcp-fast.c unhide-output.c -o unhide-tcp
Cheers!
Yours Rava

hi Rava,

static libs are dropped from Porteus. please install full 'gcc' package from slackware and you should be able to compile this app without problems.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
