Question Compiling program that use FAM


Hi
I would like to write an application that uses the FAM (fam-2.7.0) to monitor some directory in the linux filesystem. I went to oss.sgi.com/projects/fam and download:
monitor.c
source code. I got fam-2.7.0 installed but when I try to compile monitor.c it give out error linking the program.

Error Message:
root # gcc -o mon monitor.c
/tmp/ccDDZiH4.o(.text+0x94): In function `main':
: undefined reference to `FAMOpen'
/tmp/ccDDZiH4.o(.text+0x153): In function `main':
: undefined reference to `FAMMonitorDirectory'
/tmp/ccDDZiH4.o(.text+0x18c): In function `main':
: undefined reference to `FAMMonitorFile'
/tmp/ccDDZiH4.o(.text+0x1e4): In function `main':
: undefined reference to `FAMCONNECTION_GETfd'
/tmp/ccDDZiH4.o(.text+0x29c): In function `main':
: undefined reference to `FAMNextEvent'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I'm sure it has something to do with the linking but I'm not sure how to fix it. Please help


Thanks

Hi Stirling,
thanks it got me somewhere, however now I stuck at this point trying to figure out where the function FAMCONNECTION_GETfd' come from.

root # gcc -lfam -o mon monitor.c
/tmp/cc2VxbZZ.o(.text+0x1e4): In function `main':
: undefined reference to `FAMCONNECTION_GETfd'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

and

root # ls -al /usr/lib/libfam*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 41110 Mar 5 18:30 /usr/lib/libfam.a
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 703 Mar 5 18:30 /usr/lib/libfam.la
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Mar 5 18:30 /usr/lib/libfam.so -> li
bfam.so.0.0.0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Mar 5 18:30 /usr/lib/libfam.so.0 ->
libfam.so.0.0.0
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 35930 Mar 5 18:30 /usr/lib/libfam.so.0.0.0

thanks
