Problem using armlink to link arm-thumb-elf-gcc object files.

Thu Dec 8 02:38:00 GMT 2005

I'm currently trying to build a project for iMotes using tinyos. This 
requires compiling C code using arm-thumb-elf-gcc, but then linking the 
object files using the ARM ADS armlink tool. Currently, the linking step 
fails with this error:

Fatal error: L6042U: Relocation #0 in main.exe.o(.text) is wrt a mapping 
symbol(#2, Last Map Symbol = #20).

I'm using the binary release of arm-elf-gcc version 3.4 from, 
and ARM ADS 1.2. According to the ARM documentation, this error usually 
indicates that something has gone wrong on the compiler side, but I'm 
not sure what I can do to fix this. The only other clue I notice is that 
files created by arm-thumb-elf-gcc have a filetype of:

ELF 32-bit LSB relocatable, ARM, version 1 (ARM), not stripped

While files created by armcc have:

ELF 32-bit LSB relocatable, ARM, version 1 (SYSV), not stripped

Even the smallest suggestion would be helpful for me, at this point.
