https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13836 Issue ID: 13836 Summary: DMD linker (v2.066) not working with older "ld" Product: D Version: D2 Hardware: x86_64 OS: Linux Status: NEW Severity: normal Priority: P1 Component: DMD Assignee: nobody puremagic.com Reporter: lh3 me.com On CentOS5, compiling a simple D2 program with dmd-2.066 will fail with the following message: /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -l:libphobos2.a This is because dmd is calling "gcc -l:libphobos2.a" during the linking phase (as is seen from "dmd -v"). Such a syntax "-l:libphobos2.a" is only supported by recent "ld". The system "/usr/bin/ld" on CentOS5 is too old. There are two solutions on my side: 1. Install "ld" from a more recent GNU-binutils, or 2. Manually link with "gcc -lphobos2" instead of "-l:libphobos2.a". Both work for me. CentOS5 is still used on some old HPC clusters. I hope the binary release of DMD could consider this. Thank you. BTW, the issue is related to this thread: <http://www.digitalmars.com/d/archives/digitalmars/D/Linker_not_working_under_dmd_228585.html> --
