Hi,

Found out that the libtiff.a only generated when make install is issued. Sorry for my ignorant.

Thanks,

I got my libtiff build on AIX. When I try linking, with my app, I got error:

ld: 0706-006 Cannot find or open library file: -l tiff
A file or directory in the path name does not exist.        ld:open():
gmake: *** [acl] Error 255

The linking is done as -ltiff. The path is correct.  -L../opensrc/tiff/libtiff

In libtiff directory, I have only libtiff.la and there is no libtiff.a. Is this normal for libtiff?

Is the libtiff.la a shared library? How do I link my app with libtiff.la?

Thanks & Regards,
