[parsec-users] compiling problem for bodytrack, facesim and x264

Hi Ning Deng,


I suspect that your build environment on Solaris is broken. I had to rebuild
gcc from scratch to get a working compiler that could build all of PARSEC.
For example, the last error that you list (wrong ELFCLASS) indicates that
the linker which gets invoked by the compiler doesn't handle the binary
format correctly. I remember I also got this error at some point on Solaris.


My suggestion is you rebuild your build environment from scratch. Check the
various Internet sources where people talk about the issues they had when
they tried to get gcc to work on Solaris. You can also have a look at the
FAQ file that comes with PARSEC 2.1 where I documented some of the things I
did to build PARSEC on Solaris.


If all else fails you can also use the precompiled PARSEC binaries which I
created for Solaris.

Subject: [parsec-users] compiling problem for bodytrack, facesim and x264



I tried to build the packages one by one. For the reason of package
dependencies, I skipped applications like ferret, raytrace, vips and dedup
that need extra packages. I compiled the packages: blackscholes, bodytrack,
facesim, fluidanimate, freqmine, swaptions, x264, canneal and streamcluster.
There are some problem when compiling following packages, I paste the error
message for diagnosis:

Can anyone give me some hints?  Thanks in advance.
