I am trying to configure Linux kernel [Angstrom distribution] via make menuconfig, but I get these errors.

make: Warning: File `/usr/src/linux-' has modification time 11511 s in the future
make[1]: Warning: File `scripts/Makefile.host' has modification time 11393 s in the future
  HOSTCC  scripts/basic/fixdep
/usr/lib/gcc/arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/4.3.3/../../../../arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/bin/ld: cannot find -lgcc_s
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [scripts/basic/fixdep] Error 1
make: *** [scripts_basic] Error 2

The same occurs when I tried to compile Hello_world.c program.

/usr/lib/gcc/arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/4.3.3/../../../../arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/bin/ld: cannot find -lgcc_s
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I noticed that libgcc_s.so is missing. How can i fix this? Any help would really be appreciated.

  • What compiler is this? And can you reproduce the problem with a hello world example? We had someone with a similar error just a little while ago... – Faheem Mitha Feb 9 '14 at 16:15
  • Angstrom users are advised not to manually install gcc, libgcc etc but task-native-sdk (opkg install task-native-sdk). I 'll try with Hello_world.c and I let you know. – dempap Feb 9 '14 at 16:56
  • Same thing with Hello_world.c program. – dempap Feb 9 '14 at 22:06
  • Post the output of gcc --version. – Faheem Mitha Feb 9 '14 at 22:40
  • gcc version 4.3.3 (GCC) – dempap Feb 11 '14 at 14:35

It will depend on where the file is, in my case it works like this:

:~$ locate gcc_s

And you have to make sure that path is present in one of the ld.so.conf files like:

:~$ cat /etc/ld.so.conf.d/x86_64-linux-gnu.conf
# Multiarch support

But this is Debian x86_64

:~$ gcc -lgcc_s sample.c -o sample
:~$ ldd sample
linux-vdso.so.1 =>  (0x00007fff6a9ff000)
libgcc_s.so.1 => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgcc_s.so.1 (0x00007f8e95a29000)
libc.so.6 => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6 (0x00007f8e9569f000)
/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x00007f8e95c4a000)

  • The only libgcc_s.so1 is located on /lib directory. /usr/lib/gcc/arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/4.3.3 directory doesn't contain anything similar. I guess I 'll have to download libgcc_s.so. – dempap Feb 9 '14 at 17:47
  • If you're cross compiling you'll have to complile the libraries as well, is /lib/libgcc_s.so.1 for x86(_64)? – Roberto Rodriguez Alcala Feb 9 '14 at 18:41
