I have Linux Mint 16 KDE, and I wanted to install the Texas Instruments Emulator from http://lpg.ticalc.org/prj_tilem/download.html.

I downloaded and extracted the source code, and installed all the necessary packages that were mentioned in the install doc.

In the terminal I typed "./configure", and then "make", after which I've got the following error message:

"/usr/bin/ld: ../emu/libtilemcore.a(graycolor.o): undefined reference to symbol 'pow@@GLIBC_2.2.5'
/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libm.so.6: error adding symbols: DSO missing from command line
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [tilem2] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/clearsky/Desktop/Texas Instruments/tilem-2.0/gui'
make: *** [all] Error 2"

Here is the complete output from the teminal:

Can anyone help me find a solution to this problem?

Your missing or have the wrong version of a library. Probably either libm or glibc. Remember you need the on that has -devel or -dev or something close to that in the name. –  cybernard Jan 16 at 1:03

If you just want to get this emulator working, instead of figuring out why you can't compile it, consider using Omnimaga PPA or glennric PPA or some other PPA that has tilem package. Make sure to pick the right version of Ubuntu on which your version of Mint is based on.

Thank you!!! It's installed! –  ClearSky Jan 16 at 6:04

I went into the Makefile in the gui subdirectory and added -lm to the GTK_LIBS line and that seemed to fix the error.
