xchat 2.0.8 plugin compile error

Postby tosk » Mon Mar 29, 2004 10:40 pm


I managed to get xchat 2.0.8 compiled and running without incident, but none of it's plugins will compile. The linker (ld) throws warnings up about undefined symbols.

Here's what I get:
<blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">code:</font><hr><pre>gcc -O3 -Wall -fPIC -DVER_MINOR=0 -DVER_MAJOR=1 -DVER_PATCH=5 -DVER_STRING=\"1.0.5\" -Ddlsym=dlsym_prepend_underscore -I/sw/include -DUSE_UPRECORD -L/sw/lib -ldl -o libxsys-1.0.5.so xsys.o parse.o
ld: Undefined symbols:
make: *** [libxsys-1.0.5.so] Error 1</pre>[/quote]

This is only one of the many plugins I've tried to compile. Each of the other produce similar results, mostly varying in the specific symbols that ld says are undefined.

Did you compile that manually?

I think you need flags: -Wl,--export-dynamic
and maybe also: -shared

(GCC compile flags that is).
