Subject: SLS, g++, shared libs, and X

* Newbie alert *

I'm using the "latest-1" distribution of SLS to run some C++/X software
I wrote for a Sun, and I'm having trouble linking.  Linking to shared
libs would be nice, and I tried it despite words in the documentation
about X stuff not having jump tables -- it bombs horribly when it runs.
Linking "static" is acceptable but the linker complains about not finding
functions usually located in libm.  Is the solution just to move the
correct libm file into the correct directory, or is something else going
on here?

The documentation touches on these topics, but I'd love to see a summary
of the relationships between:
  standard libs and shared libs (classic and jump table),
  gcc (vs g++?) libs (libm in particular),
  X libs.

Dammit Jim! I'm a program, not a doctor!

Try linking "-nojump"

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State
