Gnu Linker probs with Linux. HELP

Post by Stuart Macle » Sun, 20 Feb 1994 01:59:00

Hi there, I tried to install the latest version of GNU binutils,
version 2.3, on my Linux box. (pl 14, gcc 2.5.7 lib4.5.19). It
compiles OK but won't run. Some error referring to

'can't emulate i486'.

I can't work out what 'emualtion' means, even having read the info

Somebody posted me a brief answer, stating that the linker couldn't
work because of Linux's shared library format. Unfortunately, I lost
the post.

Any help and explanations gratefully appreciated. Cheers.

1. Help with GNU linker errors

I'm a veteran Windows programmer now getting deep into Linux.  I'm doing
some gcc compiling and during the link stage I'm getting linker errors from
'ld' lik "cannot find -lrealtime".  I tried looking at the 'ld' man page and
searching for "cannot find" without success.  What compounds this problem is
if I try to do a Google search for "cannot find -l",  Google treats the
minus sign as filter (don't include searches with the string following '-'),
and I tried quoting the minus sign and that doesn't seem to help, nor I have
I figured out the equivalent of an "escape" character to precede the minus

So, can anyone tell me how to interpret this error and more importantly, a
good URL or doc that goes into the GNU Linker errors?
