Package compilation error "multiple definition of 'nout_int'"

Asked by Ronan Schwarz on 2020-10-06

Hi,

While running "make" for CalcHEP 3.8.5 I am getting the following error (including the last gcc call):

gcc -g -fsigned-char -std=gnu99 -fPIC -Iinclude -I../../include -I../num/include -I../chep_crt/include -I../service2/include -I../getmem/include -I../mix_events/include -I../dynamicME/include -o ../../bin/lhe2tab lhe2tab.c ../mix_events/readLHE.c dummy_output.c ../../lib/num_c.a ../../lib/serv.a ../../include/VandPgate.c ../../lib/dummy.a ../../lib/ntools.a -lX11 -rdynamic -ldl -lm -lpthread
/usr/bin/ld: ../../lib/num_c.a(interface.o):/usr/local/calchep_3.8.5/c_source/num/interface.c:12: multiple definition of `nout_int'; /tmp/cci3aESG.o:/usr/local/calchep_3.8.5/c_source/tab/lhe2tab.c:13: first defined here
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [Makefile:29: ../../bin/lhe2tab] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory '/usr/local/calchep_3.8.5/c_source/tab'
make[1]: *** [Makefile:13: all] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory '/usr/local/calchep_3.8.5/c_source'
make: *** [Makefile:33: COMPILE] Error 2

I had the same problem when I tried to compile other versions (3.8.4 and 3.7.5). How can I resolve the issue? My machine is running Manjaro Linux 20.1.1

Cheers,
Ronan

Please  test improved version 3.8.6 which I put on WEB just now.

Up to now  all Linux compilers allow multiple definition of global
parameter if initialization of parameters is absent. But strictly
speaking C does does not allow it.

I have fixed this bug in all cases that I can find. So, I hope the
problem is solved.  If nevertheless you still see it, please send a
message.

Thanks so much for your help!

Where exactly can find the improved version? It isn't on https://theory.sinp.msu.ru/~pukhov/calchep.html yet.
