while linking against precompiled Linux_P4SSE2 V3.6.0, we encounter several linker errors of the following type:
ld: warning: type and size of dynamic symbol `ATL_dJIK72x72x72TN72x72x0_a1_b1' are not defined
ld: dynamic variable `ATL_dJIK72x72x72TN72x72x0_a1_b1' is zero size
ld: /home/chris/Packages/ATLAS/lib/libatlas.a(ATL_dAgemmNN.o)(.text+0x14d): unresolvable R_386_32 relocation against symbol `ATL_dJIK72x72x72TN72x72x0_a1_b1'
ld: final link failed: Nonrepresentable section on output
We checked libatlas.a with nm -S which should produce output of the following form: <address> <size> T <symbol_name>.
It looks like <size> is missing for several ATLAS symbols:
# nm -S libatlas.a | grep "^[^ ]* \<T\>"
00000000 T ATL_dJIK72x72x72TN72x72x0_a1_b0
00000000 T ATL_dJIK72x72x72TN72x72x0_a1_b1
However, for most other symbols, the size is defined, e.g.
00000548 00000202 T ATL_dprow2blkT_a1
00000000 00000547 T ATL_dprow2blkTF
Can you confirm this? Is there a workaround?
We are using "GNU ld version 126.96.36.199.5 20051219" with SuSE10.1 Linux.
