Cygwin problem lpthread missing!


I have a folder includes many c++, c, h, object files as well as a MakeFile. So, I used Cygwin as well as MinGW to create an executable file namely calibrator.exe.

So, I address the target folder and type in "make all". On both MinGW and CygWin got the following errors.

CygWin:

<pre lang="vb">g++ -O3 -gstabs -Wall -DHAVE_CONFIG_H=1 -DMEASURES_BITS_16WIDE `fltk-config --cxxflags` -I/usr/include/libxml2 -I../emeter-toolkit -I../emeter-metrology/include -I../emeter-app -ocalibrator.exe cal-gui.o cal-control.o generator.o generator-by2463m.o generator-kaipu.o generator-ptc8320m.o generator-manual.o generator-pts3_3.o generator-pts3_3c.o generator-tf9100.o generator-star.o gui.o meter-control.o meter-access-dlt645.o meter-consumption-window.o meter-readings-window.o meter-support-windows.o ref-meter-by2463m.o ref-meter-control.o ref-meter-hsiang-cheng-hc3100.o ref-meter-kaipu-p3001c.o ref-meter-pts3_3.o ref-meter-pts3_3c.o ref-meter-star-s6502.o ref-meter-mixed.o pts3_3.o pts3_3c.o kaipu_p3001c.o serial.o meter-interact-dlt645.o -L/MinGW/bin -lxml2 -lpthreadGC2 `fltk-config --ldflags`
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-cygwin/4.8.3/../../../../x86_64-pc-cygwin/bin/ld: cannot find -lpthreadGC2
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
Makefile:100: recipe for target 'calibrator.exe' failed
make: *** [calibrator.exe] Error 1</pre>



MinGW:

<a href="http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=vzvhir&s=8#.VIcFdTHF98E">Click here!</a>

So as you can see, seems in my cygwin and MinGW Bin's Folder there is something missing which is called "LpthreadGC2". I looked in this folder and found nothing under this name.

So, what do you think? How can I fix this problem and make .exe? what is the extension of this file? Is this a .dll file or so? Any idea please?

Thank you in advance!

I would try -pthread instead of that -lpthreadGC2, probably helps (but I'm not really sure)

Sorry but I do not understand your point! How can I replace it with pthread? What folder please?

that is not a folder, but a switch to the compiler. You need to modify it in the makefile.

you can edit a makefile with any text editor (that is a simple text file)

Here is part of the MakeFile:


ifdef WINDIR
EXTRA_LIBS = -L/MinGW/bin -lxml2 -lpthreadGC2
else
EXTRA_LIBS = -lxml2 -lpthread
endif



I changed it to

ifdef WINDIR
EXTRA_LIBS = -L/MinGW/bin -lxml2 -lpthreadGC2
else
EXTRA_LIBS = -lxml2 -pthread
endif

please post the error message and other relevant info (probably the makefile itself, what do you want to make), otherwise we will not able to give you any help

And here is the Make file. I would like to make an executable file namely calibrator.exe
