Subject: Re: Problem installing Sybperl under Linux
Date: Oct 4 1997 12:43AM
We had this problem too, several month ago. And we could not really solve
it. But it was gone, after installing SuSE 5.0.
But maybe some hints:
- are you shure to have static linking enabled in the CONFIG file (although
the libraries are in ELF format, they don't support dynamic linking;) I'm a
litte confuse about all this -fpic and -shared stuff in your make-output.
- in the elf-port Sybase's libtcl.a was renamed to libsybtcl.a. Since
sybperl doesn't know this, you should change in CTlib/Makefile.PL the -tcl
to -sybtcl in the line where $lib_string is set before you call perl
- Our cc and ld-versions which compile all the stuff:
gcc version 18.104.22.168
GNU ld version 2.8.1 (with BFD 2.8.1)
Hope that helps

Sorry Michael. It was just a wrong keystroke in my last reply. Hope you get
your real name back soon.
