When i was linking C object codes calling library functions from two different softwares, error occurs in linking stage :

/bin/ld: Invalid loader fixup needed.

The platform is HP C compiler on HP 9000 Series 700/800 computer.

The error will be avoided when the -L option to include the library path is excluded from the make program. But, then successfully linked program will come to run-time error as there are unresolved symbols.

I am not sure what your question is, but I suggest you find the documentation for libraries you are using.

Check requrement for the linking, and ensure you include what you think you include.

I need more information to answer the question.

Perhaps you are trying to link with shared libraries without
setting environment variable SHLIB_PATH.
