Hi Nusrat,

It depends mostly on the tools that you're using.  The O/S, compiler, and linker.

If you're using GCC, it a command line option.

  gcc -l library ...

Just add "-l library" to the command line with the other options.  GCC will pass that to the linker.

Try to use:

gcc -shared -o myfile.so myfile.c -lm

where  myfile,c is your source file, but myfie.so is the shared library you want to create

Hi Nusrat,

If you're trying to link a library to your compiled code, you don't need the -fPIC parameter.  -fPIC indicates that the code that you're compiling is to be inserted into a library for later use.  Note that -fPIC isn't needed for most C functions that are going to be placed in a library.

[root@localhost tmp]# gcc -shared -o libsample.so sample.c -lm
/bin/ld: /tmp/ccjQThFb.o: relocation R_X86_64_PC32 against undefined symbol `hypot@@GLIBC_2.2.5' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
/bin/ld: final link failed: Bad value
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

Could you explain what does this mean? And where to read about this?

Just add -fPIC as suggested. Like:

gcc -shared -fPIC -o libsample.so sample.c -lm

SapaCommented:
PIC means Position Independent Code. This code has neither conditional nor unconditional jumps to fixed addresses and can be loaded (actually mapped) from arbitrary address. It is important for shared libraries because nobody knows during library linking the address where they be mapped to during programm execution.

Yes, I should add that, the question was what does this mean:
relocation R_X86_64_PC32 against undefined symbol `hypot@@GLIBC_2.2.5' can not be used when making a shared object;

Hi Nusrat,

The issue came about as systems expanded from 32 to 64 bits.  The high-level explanation is that the object in question isn't compatible with the module being created and is therefore considered undefined.  It's kind of like a C++ method void F1(int X) being undefined when the compiled program calls F1 ("string).

A 64-bit program linking to or via a 32-bit object could be disastrous as the other 32 bits are the 32-bits next to the stored object.  A read using the object is undefined.  A write of the object clobbers the object next to it.
