Compiling with g++

Compiling with g++

How can I compile my program with mkl and g++?

I already tried the mkl line advisor, but I got the "pthread_mutex_trylock" message.

How`s it going ?

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

What is your linkline?

For intel64, lp64 interface, it is something like this.

 -Wl,--start-group $(MKLROOT)/lib/intel64/libmkl_intel_lp64.a $(MKLROOT)/lib/intel64/libmkl_core.a $(MKLROOT)/lib/intel64/libmkl_gnu_thread.a -Wl,--end-group -ldl -lpthread -lm

Have you threaded your program with pthreads?



No, I don't thread with pthreads.

The point is, somewhere in your build you are calling a pthread function, e.g. by using OpenMP in your own code or by linking an mkl_thread library.  You will need either to remove the pthread function usage or link properly to support it.

Hi Jack,

Are you working on Ubuntu system?

It looks similiar problem as and the one in  Some ubuntu and GCC have the issue, some have not.

You may try to add the compiler option : -Wl,--no-as-needed.   for example

g++ -Wall -o test.exe test.cpp -Wl,--no-as-needed -lmkl_intel_lp64 -lmkl_sequential -lmkl_core -ldl -lpthread -lm

Best Regards,


It works. Thank you everybody.
