Description Martin Potter 2015-08-13 19:11:03 UTC
We build Mono with the -with-static_mono=no for various reasons and it looks like this commit (https://github.com/mono/mono/commit/83e22234037a0e3560909b311811391efa117f22) broke the ability to compile with that flag. Attempting to build results in an undefined symbol error for mono_build_date.

Undefined symbols for architecture x86_64:
  "_mono_build_date", referenced from:
      _main in mono_sgen-main-sgen.o

Hey Alexis,

Do you mind looking at this one?
Comment 2 Anton Voyl 2016-07-15 14:24:33 UTC
This problem remains with mono (gcc 5.4).
I would be grateful to get any feedback about this issue.
Thank you for support, and regards.

Hey João,

Can you fix this issue?
Comment 4 Anton Voyl 2016-07-16 20:24:16 UTC
Note that cross compiling shared also fails as reported in https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=41340. Cross compiling is therefore not possible.

Thank you for any feedback.

meh... I meant static, not shared
Comment 6 RQDQ 2016-09-07 14:43:33 UTC
Any workarounds available?
Comment 7 Martin Potter 2016-09-07 15:53:15 UTC

You can comment out or remove this line https://github.com/mono/mono/blob/master/mono/mini/main.c#L213 which is what we are currently doing to compile.
