Erlang Install on i368-pc-sollaris2.10 issues

Kelvin Poon (Scotiabank GBM)



I am running into an issue with an Erlang install on our Unix machine (Solaris 10).


Erlang version: R16B03

OS: Solaris 10


I am following the steps listed on the official install page:


I have unpacked the tar file from, these are the steps I have followed:


export ERL_TOP=<my local directory where tar file was unpacked>/otp_src_R16B03

export DED_LD=gcc #using gcc located at /usr/sfw/bin/gcc

export PATH=/usr/sfw/bin:/usr/xpg4/bin/:/bin

./configure –prefix=<target erlang install directory>


Configuration finished with: (I can post the entire output if necessary)

gmake #located at /usr/sfw/bin/gmake


The error I receive is:

ld: fatal: symbol referencing errors. No output written to ../priv/lib/i386-pc-solaris2.10/

I looked looks like it has to do with the gcc library on solaris. Is this an issue with my gcc install where it has unresolved symbols?


I realize I can get pass this by using LDFLAGS=-W1,-x,nodefs where it ignores unresolved symbols. However I need this for the purpose of running RabbitMQ, and I run into other issues when running RabbitMQ when install Erlang this way, so I would like to see what your opinions are.
