I have installed
f30 about 4 weeks ago and I keep encountering this error when compiling
c++ macros or trying to install programs that require a compilation of a source code in
error: ld returned 126 exit status
I’ve tried to look into it and so far I have no explanation.
What I tried to is to find where is
ld and see if I can find something. So,
ld resides in
/usr/bin which is a soft link from
$ ls -al /usr/bin/ld*
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 20 Apr 26 04:27 /usr/bin/ld -> /etc/alternatives/ld
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 13536 Aug 11 11:27 /usr/bin/ld.bfd
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 5441 Jun 6 13:55 /usr/bin/ldd
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 3853632 Mar 6 11:00 /usr/bin/ld.gold
When I try to execute
ld by itself, I get the following error
bash: /usr/bin/ld: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error
$ sudo /usr/bin/ld
/usr/bin/ld: /usr/bin/ld: cannot execute binary file
Then I searched the original
/etc/alternatives location, but it’s again a soft link to the orignial one!
$ ls -al /etc/alternatives/ld*
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 15 Apr 26 04:27 /etc/alternatives/ld -> /usr/bin/ld.bfd
I tried to find the version of
ld.bfd but it seems that it cannot be executed
$ /usr/bin/ld.bfd --version
bash: /usr/bin/ld.bfd: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error
$ sudo /usr/bin/ld.bfd --version
/usr/bin/ld.bfd: /usr/bin/ld.bfd: cannot execute binary file
Any idea on how to understand what is wrong and solve the issue?
Please, collect the related diagnostics:
rpm -q -f $(type -p ld)
rpm -V $(rpm -q -f $(type -p ld))
Thank you very much for your answer!
This are the diagnostics you asked
$ type ld
ld is /usr/bin/ld
$ rpm -q -f $(type -p ld)
$ rpm -V $(rpm -q -f $(type -p ld))
readlink -f $(type -p ld)
rpm -q -f $(readlink -f $(type -p ld))
Thank you once again.
I don’t understand what are you trying to see, but I will do a research!
$ readlink -f $(type -p ld)
$ rpm -q -f $(readlink -f $(type -p ld))
I wanted to verify the following:
- Automatic symlink resolution.
- The package which provides the binary:
- Package version.
- Package integrity.
I don’t see any issues, but still it doesn’t work, and this is confusing.
Please, also check:
file $(readlink -f $(type -p ld))
A similar issue:
Thank you very much for you help!
I think I solve it, unless I destroyed something without knowing it!
binutils by using
sudo yum reinstall binutils
and it seems it is working!
But I really hope I didn’t messed up with something else!
How can I validate that?
