libfftw3.a could not read symbols Bad value

Abhilash Chandy, 2009-08-28 07:01


I have a 64-bit Athlon Opteron machine running Fedora on it and when I try to compile the channelflow libraries just by typing “make” I get the following error

/usr/bin/ld: /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.3.0/../../../../lib64/libfftw3.a(import-wisdom-from-file.o): relocation R_X86_64_32 against `a local symbol' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.3.0/../../../../lib64/libfftw3.a: could not read symbols: Bad value collect2: ld returned 1 exit status make[2]: *** [] Error 1

It looks like it has an incompatibility with the 64-bit system, but I am not sure. Any idea anybody whats going on?

Thanks in advance.
