    create_rts fails with error "ld: fatal: file [...] crti.o: open failed"

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Problem Symptoms:
    When one enters the command "create_rts" as UNIX user aleph, the following error message appears:

    $ create_rts
    create rts
    ld: fatal: file /opt/SUNWspro/prod/lib/crti.o: open failed: No such file or directory
    mv: cannot access /exlibris/aleph/a20_1/aleph/exe/rts32x

    The file $aleph_dev/product/local/cobol/coblib/liblist which belongs to the COBOL development and run-time environment does not include the correct path to the following object and library files:


    Determine the actual location of the object and library files given above by entering the command "which cc" as UNIX user aleph.

    $ which cc

    In this example, the object and library files are probably located in directory /opt/solarisstudio12.3/prod/lib .
    Verify this path to the files by displaying the contents of the directory.

    Open the file $aleph_dev/product/local/cobol/coblib/liblist with a text editor.

    Replace the path to each of the object and library files given above with the path determined in Step 1.

    Execute the command "create_rts" again. No error messages should appear.
