Oracle 11i relink problem, libcl.a

During an Oracle relink, we're getting the following error output, and the process is failing.

Error output:
/usr/ccs/bin/ld: Invalid loader fixup in text space needed in output file for sy
mbol "$0000005E" in input file: "/usr/lib/libcl.a(ftnerr.o)". Make sure it was c
ompiled with +z/+Z.
*** Error exit code 1

The make command generating this error is:
make -f ins_reports60w.mk install

Been looking on the forums and metalink but so far haven't found anything particularly helpful. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Oops, I should also mention that we have already applied all of the patches mentioned in metalink Note 169706.1 (or patches that have superceded them). The OS platform is HPUX 11.00.

Also applied PHSS_27469, a libcl patch. Also the latest linker and aC++ patches. Also PHSS_20122. Seemingly no impact.

Re: Oracle 11i relink problem, libcl.a

version of Oracle ?

Are we talking about an Oracle DB relink or is it IAS?

I've heard installing both the Oracle DB
software and the IAS software in the Same $ORACLE_HOME location can cause this ?

If your attempting to relink Oracle IAS (Internet Application Server) then
if this archive file -> /usr/lib/libcl.a
reference is removed from the Oracle: sysliblist file the relink *may*work.... don't ask why I'm not too sure myself ... hopefully the above may help ....

Alex is right.

Remove the -l:libcl.a entry from $ORACLE_HOME/lib/sysliblist file and then relink.

Revert on the results.

Re: Oracle 11i relink problem, libcl.a

Occaisionally we've noticed these files corrupt themselves, for no apparent reason. WE suspect a problem with a disk array during link.

Sometimes you need to get the offending file from a backup or unaffected server.

The above solutions however have much more promise and should be tried FIRST.

Re: Oracle 11i relink problem, libcl.a

Well, you were all right, of course. :-)

For some reason I didn't get the notice from the ITRC that replies to the message had been posted until this morning, but it's very satisfying to note that the first response, which was a correct response, came only about 25 minutes after the post - Oracle's response took almost a week.

Thanks for the help. :-)
