I have downloaded kmergenie 1.7038 and attempted to compile it on (1) Ubuntu 14.01, (2) a cluster which I think is based on Suse Linux, and (3) Mac OS X (10.10.5). The compilation instructions are very simple ("make"), but have failed on all three platforms. The failures seems to be related to the bundled ntcard software while linking. On Ubuntu, the long string of 'undefined reference' errors and 'access beyond end' errors concludes with:
/usr/bin/ld: ntcard-ntcard.o: access beyond end of merged section (36032) /usr/bin/ld: ntcard-ntcard.o(.debug_info+0x69e5): reloc against `.debug_str': error 2 /usr/bin/ld: final link failed: Nonrepresentable section on output collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status make: *** [ntcard] Error 1
The errors superficially do not look the same on different platforms. In order to check ntcard itself, I have downloaded and compiled that application separately (no errors).
I would be grateful for any suggestions of how to get this to compile. Thanks!
