#244 reopening compilation fix from #2943558

unexpected behavior
Ben Ward

I tried what you suggested, and it appears that file is either missing, or just not in the correct location.

[ben@kalkulon ~]$ nm src/libtclcad/.libs/libtclcad.a | grep tkImgFmtPIX
nm: 'src/libtclcad/.libs/libtclcad.a': No such file
[ben@kalkulon ~]$

    Sean, I tried what you suggested. before the bug tracker closed that issue... here is your suggestion.

    Your latest error doesn't make a whole lot of sense and may simply
    indicate your compilation is in some peculiar state from rerunning make.
    It's complaining about a missing symbol that should be provided by a
    library that it's linking in. What does this output:

    nm src/libtclcad/.libs/libtclcad.a | grep tkImgFmtPIX

    It should report something like this:

    sushi:~/brlcad morrison$ nm src/libtclcad/.libs/libtclcad.a|grep
    00000720 D _tkImgFmtPIX

    If it does, then try running this and report the output:

    cd src/bwish

    and here is my ouput from the error in compiling BRL-CAD.

    [ben@kalkulon ~]$ nm src/libtclcad/.libs/libtclcad.a | grep tkImgFmtPIX
    nm: 'src/libtclcad/.libs/libtclcad.a': No such file
    [ben@kalkulon ~]$ su
    [root@kalkulon ben]# nm src/libtclcad/.libs/libtclcad.a | grep tkImgFmtPIX
    nm: 'src/libtclcad/.libs/libtclcad.a': No such file
    [root@kalkulon ben]#

    so what do you suggest at this point?

    thanks for all the advice and patience thus far.

    I wondered where/why this file was missing, so I looked through the directory path, and here is what I found..

    [ben@kalkulon brlcad-7.16.4]$ cd src
    [ben@kalkulon src]$ ls

    libtclcad_la-tclcadAutoPath.lo Makefile
    [ben@kalkulon libtclcad]$ ls -a
    . libtclcad_la-ged_obj.lo libtclcad_la-tkImgFmtPIX.o

    libtclcad.la libtclcad_la-tkImgFmtPIX.lo tkImgFmtPIX.c
    [ben@kalkulon libtclcad]$ cd .libs
    [ben@kalkulon .libs]$ ls
    libtclcad.a libtclcad_la-tclcadAutoPath.o libtclcad.so.19
    libtclcad.la libtclcad_la-tclcad.o libtclcad.so.19.0.1
    libtclcad_la-ged_obj.o libtclcad_la-tkImgFmtPIX.o
    libtclcad.lai libtclcad.so
    [ben@kalkulon .libs]$ nm src/libtclcad/.libs/libtclcad.a | grep tkImgFmtPIX
    nm: 'src/libtclcad/.libs/libtclcad.a': No such file
    [ben@kalkulon .libs]$

    so I saw the file was in the path where I thought it should be, so I ran the comman again, and got the same output...
    and I have the man page for the "nm" command, so I (perhaps incorrectly) assume that the gnu tool is loaded.
    and following the same logic, I also have the man page for the grep comman... so I'm not sure what exactly is missing (ie whether it is the file, or the commands to check it with)
