Spectre compilation error
Aug 21st, 2017, 5:59am
Hi all,

I am trying to simulate a circuit with only verilog elements using MMSIM 7.0 / Spectre (64 bit) in Cadence 6.1.3. I get the following error on Run
 "  ERROR (VACOMP-1008): Cannot compile ahdlcmi module library .."

The ahdlcmi log file for the error says,
"ld: BFD (GNU Binutils) 2.18 internal error, aborting at /glad/sfi/ct_src/gcc-v4.1.2p2/platforms/lnx86_64/matrix_bootstrap_000/binutils-2
.18/bfd/reloc.c line 446 in bfd_get_reloc_size

ld: Please report this bug.

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
gnumake: *** [obj/optimize/5.0/] Error 1

Does anyone know what is the problem and how to fix it?

Kind regards

I couldn't find any specific reference to this problem, but why are you using a (roughly) 10 year old version of the simulator? There have been 9 major versions of the MMSIM/SPECTRE since then, so even if this was a bug then, it's highly likely it's been fixed in the meantime.

Even if it was a known bug then, it's likely that the only fix was to use a newer version. You probably could turn off compilation by adding "-ac 0" to the spectre command line - if using ADE, this can be done via Setup->Environment and then in the usrCmdLineOptions add "-ac 0". I wouldn't normally recommend doing that, but given that you're using such an ancient version of the simulator, you probably don't care that much about performance...
