Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /opt/CA/ingresii/ingres/lib/libbecompat.1.so when searching for -lbecompat.1
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lbecompat.1
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
After checking the compatibility list it seems that the application does not support EM64T platforms - hence the failure to compile iimerge as seen above. Then it got me thinking; if I could use related 32-bit native c libraries on the 64-bit platform, would it be possible to successfully compile the binary?
Just to confirm that glibc is indeed the culprit, I did a comparison for both 32bit and 64bit versions of binutils (where 'ld' is part of the package), and got the following dependencies:
It would be nice to be able to use 32 bit libs on 64 bit platform. But I don't know the answer to your questions, I have been compiling all the libs I need on 64 bit platform first and then compile the binary.
It's nice to see someone using the CA Open Ingres Database What are you using it for?
