Multiple definitions of '_gfortran_[...]' in Windows

Postby adamalb » Mon Jul 23, 2018 3:54 pm

I am trying to install LAPACK for Windows using MinGW following the instructions in 'Easy Windows Build' -
Ultimately I just want to be able to link LAPACk libraries to compilation in gfortran out of Visual Studio and without Intel compilers.
I consistently get this error when running 'make' from MinGW:

[ 44%] Linking Fortran shared library ..\bin\liblapack.dll

mingw32-make: *** [Makefile:162: all] Error 2

I am using the latest version of MinGW (.txt in folder says 'version : MinGW-W64-builds-4.3.5'), CMake 3.12.0 and LAPACK 3.8.0, although I have tried other LAPACK and MinGW versions with similar errors.
Switching between native compilers of 32 and 64 bits in CMake does not affect, I still get the same error.
I am building the files with CMake checking LAPACKE. Not checking its box gives the same error, but at stage [100%].
I am using Windows 10 Education.

What kind of error is this? Can I solve it myself? Is there any combination of program version that solve this issue?

I've encountered completely the same problem as yours. I also tried different versions of Mingw or Lapack, it didn't work.

Did you try adding -lgfortran in your linking sequence?

Hello Lapack community. I'm stuck in the same issue (I followed exactly the steps mentioned on "Easy Windows Build"). Admin could be please be more explanatory about adding -lgfortran in the linking sequence?
Thanks in advance

It solves by editing the next file created by Cmake.

Add the following sentence as an option of x86_64-w64-mingw32-gfortran.exe

C:\MinGW\bin\x86_64-w64-mingw32-gfortran.exe -O2 -DNDEBUG -O2 -shared -o ..\bin\liblapack.dll -Wl,--out-implib,..\lib\liblapack.dll.a -Wl,--major-image-version,3,--minor-image-version,8 -Wl,--whole-archive CMakeFiles\lapack.dir/objects.a -Wl,--no-whole-archive @CMakeFiles\lapack.dir\linklibs.rsp -Wl,--output-def,lapack.def

Please refer to the following site.
