Hi, the appearance is simply that the core X11 library is missing, ie. that the "-lX11" part isn't working. Is there something weird about how xlib is being built ? ie. does libX11.so actually contain the symbol XCreateGC ? [It is probably xcb rather that xlib though - you may want to check how it's being built.] > Does anybody have any experience with building Argyll with Gold? Any > tips on how to deal with this? As far as I can determine, there is no difference between the Gold based Gnu linker and what came before it, apart from speed. There is this though <https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/GoldIncompatibilities>. Could it be something like libX11 being empty and relying on indirectly linking to the xcb libraries ? I'd expect a lot of X11 applications to break though, unless their build scripts have been updates to explicitly link to xcb. Graeme Gill.
