: : This looks like a problem between ELF on old COFF binary-format. The
: : gcc 2.6.3 write ELF-binaries by default and the gcc 2.5.8 writes the
: : old binary-format. So if you want to link libraries with different
: : formats it didn't work. The linker knows the libc.so but it is in the
: : wrong format. There is an option for ld.so to see what format each
: : library, it knows, has.
: : Is motif 2.0 from Metrolink in ELF format or not.
: : If it isn't, you need an update ( once again ).
: Metrolink Motif 2.0 comes with libc5 based elf binaries.
About for 5 or 6 weeks now.
The time I got it, there were NO elf libs available from Metrolink.
I think it's time to upgrade to elf anyway - I need gcc 2.7.0 ...
Another thing: I don't have any ELF libraries on my system at the moment.
The compiler can't link in libraries of different formats as they all are
still non-ELF. I wonder why I don't get linker errors for other libs
(and Motif programs require a lot: -lXm -lXpm -lXt -lXmu -lX11 -lXext ...),
but only for libc (which usually needn't to be specified) ?
