Hi all,
i got this error while doing make (compiling all my files tgt).
Can anybody tell me why is this happening, and how should i solve this?
because my codes runs fine on the other machine but not this.
Thanks in advance:)

$ make
gcc -o m1 matmul_main.o matmul_setup.o matmul_compute.o matmul_output.o -lm -lpthread
/usr/bin/ld: matmul_main.o: Relocations in generic ELF (EM: 2)
matmul_main.o: could not read symbols: File in wrong format
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [m1] Error 1

if my make is up-to-date, it gives me another error:
$ make
make: `m1' is up to date.
$ m1 5 10 5 2
-bash: m1: command not found

I'm responding to a neglected question alert.  My 'make' expertise is pretty rusty.

Is this new code or have you compileed it before?

Have you tried a 'make clean' before the make?

Do you have the source to:
matmul_main.o
matmul_setup.o
matmul_compute.o
matmul_output.o

or are you just copying them over?
