I'm trying to access functions from the crypto libray such as:
ge_frombytes_vartime(ge_p3 *h, const unsigned char *s)
ge_p3_to_p2(ge_p2 *r, const ge_p3 *p)
both in crypto-ops.c

I've added the crypto lib to the CMakeList:

    cncrypto <-- This one

and I get the following error from the linker:

 98%] Linking CXX executable ../../bin/monero-wallet-cli
../wallet/libwallet.so: undefined reference to `ge_frombytes_vartime(ge_p3*, unsigned char const*)'
../wallet/libwallet.so: undefined reference to `ge_p3_to_p2(ge_p2*, ge_p3 const*)'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

I can't figure out where the problem is coming from


You are probably linking them in as C++. Lookup the different in linkage between C and C++, and/or copy how Monero already does, ie:

extern "C"
#include "c_header.h"

Alternatively, rctOps.h has a convenience layer above these if performance isn't critical.

  • Could you elaborate on the difference between C and C++ linkage? or send me a link – joshuag Oct 8 '18 at 10:28

    I added an example. – user36303 Oct 8 '18 at 12:31
