Any guess on what I should do?

Have never had problems installing velvet on Ubuntu - looks like gcc can't find the lm (libm) library - they are here on mine:

% ls -F /usr/lib/libm.{a,so} /usr/lib/libm.a /usr/lib/

There is a new "feature/bug" of recent GCC versions that seems to cause a lot of problems and I suspect it here as well. The order of include libraries now matter, linked libraries have to be included after the code that calls into them.

I suspect the same here, in the makefile you will need to list the flag -lm as being the last flag of the compilation command.

Basically stick the -lm at the end of command below to look like this:

cc -Wall -O3 -o velvetg obj/tightString.o ... -lm

I encountered the same problem as mentioned in the first post. However, I'm not that experienced with makefiles. Hence, I don't really know what to change in the makefile. Can anyone please give some more detailed advise?
