[Solved] Undefined reference to symbol ‘[email protected]@GLIBC_2.2.5’

I just pulled a git repository in which me and my friends are developing an application. When I am running make I am facing this error:

undefined reference to symbol ‘[email protected]@GLIBC_2.2.5’
/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ error adding symbols: DSO
missing from command line collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
Makefile:182: recipe for target ‘bin/release/ns’ failed make[1]: *
[bin/release/ns] Error 1 Makefile:133: recipe for target ‘release’
failed make: *
[release] Error 2

my friend pulled the same branch and he runs it without any problem.

Could you please give me some hints about the fix?

Detailed answer would be highly appreciated.

Solution #1:

I’ve been working on a multi-platform game engine and I faced same issue only on Linux. If you are using cmake add following to your cmake file:


If you are not using cmake you need to add this flag for your compiler manually.

The complete cmake for using threads in linux systems must contain following commands:

      set(CMAKE_THREAD_LIBS_INIT "-lpthread")

Note: Also this fix works for Mac-Os but with one difference. You don’t need to pass -pthread as compiler flag

Solution #2:

You should add “-lpthread” to your library. Of cause, you should also add the directory of libpthread to your library directories.
