Hi group,

I'm working on getting ceres-solver into Fedora/RHEL[1] and have a question about one build error that I get in the latest release v1.10.0:

This is on CentOS 7 x86_64 (gcc 4.8.2). Any ideas?

Thanks,

Taylor,

The problem is that your SuiteSparse library is compiled as a shared library, and SuiteSparse is a private dependency of Ceres, but compressed_col_sparse_matrix_utils_test uses it directly.  This was fixed post the 1.10 release in the following commit:

Add SuiteSparse link dependency for compressed_col_sparse_matrix_utils_test - 378b5752177427f5b8a2807422ba77c50a164f93

It is a very simple non-invasive change, so you could easily patch the 1.10 release with it.

Hi Taylor and Lex,

I encountered similar error like this:


/usr/bin/ld: CMakeFiles/compressed_col_sparse_matrix_utils_test.dir/compressed_col_sparse_matrix_utils_test.cc.o: undefined reference to symbol 'cholmod_free_sparse'
//usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcholmod.so.2.1.2: error adding symbols: DSO missing from command line

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [bin/compressed_col_sparse_matrix_utils_test] Error 1
make[1]: *** [internal/ceres/CMakeFiles/compressed_col_sparse_matrix_utils_test.dir/all] Error 2
make[1]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....

Is this caused by the same reason as mentioned above?

I can't understand the solution
 "Add SuiteSparse link dependency for compressed_col_sparse_matrix_utils_test - 378b5752177427f5b8a2807422ba77c50a164f93" very clearly, Could you please give more details?

This is on Ubuntu-14.04 x86-64.

Thanks,
Zheng
