Symbol(s) not found for architecture x86_64

  • Hi,

    first of all I'd like to say that I know that there's already a thread open on that topic in which I posted as well. But since I didn't get any reply until now and as it's quite urgent I try my luck opening up a new topic on the same problem.
    I’m using Qt 4.7.3 on my Mac (OS X.6.7).
    I tried to run my project from Qt Creator and from eclipse but I keep getting the above mentioned error message.

    Background: I need to implement a few functionalities into a given framework that wasn’t created by myself.
    As the framework is quite large, I think it’s not useful to post it here. And as the above mentioned problem could be solved by modifying the pro-file I think that’s where my problem might be as well.

    So here’s my pro-file:

    Project created by QtCreator 2011-06-17T13:45:15


    QT += core gui

    TARGET = Ueb03
    TEMPLATE = app
    DEPENDPATH += . src
    INCLUDEPATH += . src
    CONFIG -= app_bundle
    CONFIG += x86_64
    CONFIG -= i386
    LIBS += -lssl -lcrypto

    HEADERS += src/Geometry.h
    SOURCES += src/Geometry.cpp

    I made a few modifications according to the sampe pro file posted in this thread:

    Yet I get this error message:
    error: symbol(s) not found for architecture x86_64

    If you need any further information, please let me know.

    Thanks a lot in advance.

  • I do not have a solution however I am having a similar problem, I made a post here however I probably should have put it in this tools group as you did.

    A suggestion is to try:

    lipo -info yourlib.a
    and make sure it is also x86_64

    and the second is to see if the symbols not found are mentioned in the lib, try:

    nm yourlib.a | grep the_symbol_without_args

    You can see my post for an example.

    If both of those pass the test then you are at the same point I am. With any luck we can solve this and move on to actual development. :)


  • As a follow up, where are libssl and libcrypto coming from?


  • The linker will tell you which symbol is missing. That will help you to find out what differs.

  • Please show the complete output of the linker. You will find it in Qt Creator on the compiler output tab.

  • Hello,
    I'm prompted with the same kind of errors :
    @:-1: error: symbol(s) not found for architecture x86_64@
    @:-1: error: collect2: ld returned 1 exit status@

    Here is the code:
    @#ifndef GEOMAP_H
    #define GEOMAP_H

    //#include "mapswidget.h"

    #include <QGraphicsGeoMap>


    class MapsWidget;
    class GeoMap : public QGraphicsGeoMap

    GeoMap(QGeoMappingManager*, MapsWidget*);

    MapsWidget *mapsWidget;


    #endif // GEOMAP_H

    @#ifndef MAPSWIDGET_H
    #define MAPSWIDGET_H

    #include "mapswidgetprivate.h"

    #include <QWidget>
    #include <QGeoMappingManager>


    //class MapsWidgetPrivate;
    class MapsWidget : public QWidget

    MapsWidget(QWidget *parent = 0);

    public slots:
    void initialize(QGeoMappingManager *manager);

    MapsWidgetPrivate *d;


    #endif // MAPSWIDGET_H


    #include "geomap.h"

    #include <QGraphicsView>
    #include <QGraphicsScene>
    #include <QGeoCoordinate>
    #include <QGeoMappingManager>


    class MapsWidgetPrivate
    GeoMap *map;
    QGraphicsView *view;




    @#include "geomap.h"

    GeoMap::GeoMap(QGeoMappingManager *manager, MapsWidget *mapsWidget) :
    QGraphicsGeoMap(manager), mapsWidget(mapsWidget)

    @#include "mapswidget.h"

    #include <QtGui/QApplication>
    #include <QGeoServiceProvider>

    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    QApplication app(argc, argv);

    MapsWidget w;;
    QGeoServiceProvider *serviceProvider = new QGeoServiceProvider("nokia");
    return app.exec();


    @#include "mapswidget.h"

    MapsWidget::MapsWidget(QWidget *parent) :

    @#include "mapswidgetprivate.h"
    #include "mapswidget.h"

    void MapsWidget::initialize(QGeoMappingManager *manager)
    d->map = new GeoMap(manager, this);

     QGraphicsScene *sc = new QGraphicsScene;
     d->map->resize(350, 480);
     d->view = new QGraphicsView(sc, this);
     d->map->setCenter(QGeoCoordinate(45.783008, 24.148178));


    @# Add files and directories to ship with the application

    by adapting the examples below.

    file1.source = myfile

    dir1.source = mydir

    DEPLOYMENTFOLDERS = # file1 dir1

    symbian:TARGET.UID3 = 0xEDF1E0C2

    Smart Installer package's UID

    This UID is from the protected range

    and therefore the package will fail to install if self-signed

    By default qmake uses the unprotected range value if unprotected UID is defined for the application

    and 0x2002CCCF value if protected UID is given to the application

    #symbian:DEPLOYMENT.installer_header = 0x2002CCCF

    Allow network access on Symbian

    symbian:TARGET.CAPABILITY += NetworkServices

    If your application uses the Qt Mobility libraries, uncomment

    the following lines and add the respective components to the

    MOBILITY variable.

    CONFIG += mobility
    MOBILITY += location

    CONFIG += x86_64
    CONFIG -= i386
    LIBS += -lssl -lcrypto
    SOURCES += main.cpp
    HEADERS +=
    FORMS += mainwindow.ui

    Please do not modify the following two lines. Required for deployment.


  • The linker usually shows you which symbol(s) is/are missing. There should be more output from the error message.

    It's hard to tell what's going wrong, but as a blind guess, I suspect the mobility API to be not built correctly.

  • I forgot to mention that I use mac os 10.6.8 with qt creator 2.2.1.
    These are the only errors that are shown

  • To be mentioned that when simply trying to display a map in main it works like a charm

    @ QGeoMappingManager *mappingManager = 0;
    // QGeoRoutingManager *routingManager = 0;
    // QGeoSearchManager *searchManager = 0;

        QGeoServiceProvider serviceProvider("nokia");
        mappingManager = serviceProvider.mappingManager();
        QGraphicsGeoMap *map = new QGraphicsGeoMap(mappingManager);
        map->resize(350, 480);
        map->setPos(1, 1);
        const QGeoCoordinate *q = new QGeoCoordinate(45.783008, 24.148178);

    // QGeoMapCircleObject *circ = new QGeoMapCircleObject(*q, 50000);
    // circ->setVisible(true);
    // map->addMapObject(circ);

        QGraphicsScene scene;
        QGraphicsView view(&scene;);


  • Maybe the compilation output can give you a better understanding of what is going on ..

  • Looks to me that you need to recompile the mobility API stuff with the correct architecture settings (just another guess, though)

  • I abandoned the project .... it was very weird .... the error was probably generated by some sort of cyclic dependency. Now, that I have put all those things into 1 header and 1 cpp file and now it works. Actually I took the example which can be found in the Qt Creator.
    Thank you for all the help.
