    I have encountered a perplexing problem while trying to build an
    application, and I need some help in fixing my build environment to get
    it to compile.

    I am running Whitebox Linux 3 (similar to Redhat Enterprise Linux 3) to
    build a midi application, and I am getting an "undefined reference"
    error during linking. The error is saying that it cannot find a symbol
    which was already compiled and linked from another part of the
    application. The linker should be finding the object file, since it
    resides where all of the built object files from the app are placed,
    and the other parts of the app can find the objects there when linked.

    Can anyone point me to where to look in order to fix my build
    environment, and get this program compiled? I have asked the
    developers group for the app for suggestions, and they only suggested
    that I install an older rpm, which is about a year old, instead of
    trying to compile the latest. I am hoping that the wider linux
    community can provide some assistance in getting this built. If you
    need more info, I can provide it.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.

    I'm almost certain they can. But this is not where they discuss
    such things. Here is where we discuss the C++ language. Find
    a Linux group, or better yet, a group or mailing list which discusses
    your particular build tools.
