Undefined symbols when building with debug information and -std=c++20

Hello!

I'm using Intel HPC toolkit installed on my Fedora OS through yum repository and getting unexpected undefined symbol error when compiling

  • against C++20 standard (-std=c++20)
  • with debug information flag (either -g/-g2/-ggdb)

Here's the example program that uses std::allocator<char>:

 

#include <iostream>
#include <memory>

int main() {
    auto buf = std::allocator<char>{}.allocate(10);
}

 

If compiled with icpc -std=c++20 main.cpp no errors are thrown and program starts successfully. However, when compiled with icpc -g2 -std=c++20 main.cpp the following link errors appear:

 

$ icpc -g2 -std=c++20 main.cpp && ./a.out
ld: /tmp/icpcRngryW.o: in function `main':
/home/main.cpp:10: undefined reference to `std::allocator<char>::allocate(unsigned long)'

 

 Versions:

 

$ uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 5.8.15-301.fc33.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Oct 15 16:58:06 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Worth mentioning that I was compiling a large codebase that potentially uses a huge variety of symbols from standard library and only std::allocator<char> was missing.

Also adding -march=native resolves the issue somehow, so it happens only with generic build.
EDIT: Looks like -march=native is not directly related to the resolution. -march=native enables optimizations and therefore strips unneeded symbols.

Any clues? Thanks.

Hi,

Thanks for reaching out to us.

Could you please try using with icx compiler.

Meanwhile, we will look into the issue internally.


Thanks & Regards

Noorjahan.

Hi Noorjahan,

No such problem with icpx compiler, thanks for workaround!

I think this issue occurs on a "not yet" supported OS.

I tried the same compiler on Fedora 31 and didn't see an "undefined reference" message.

Please check systems requirements at https://software.intel.com/content/www/us/en/develop/articles/intel-oneapi-hpc-toolkit-system-requir...

If you have a Fedora 31, can you see if the issue still persists?

I think the reason here is not "unsupported OS" but "unsupported compiler version". You need to install GCC 10.2 in order to reproduce the issue.

Let's wait for the next compiler release.
