Can anybody tell me how to compile assembly to executable file on ubuntu 10.10
64 bits operating system?
1string.asm text file with assembly code
now I create 1string.o using
angela@angela-Aspire-7551:~/asme$ nasm -f elf 1string.asm
I get this
angela@angela-Aspire-7551:~/asme$ l
1string.asm 1string.o
now I want to make executable 1string file doing it
angela@angela-Aspire-7551:~/asme$ gcc 1string.o -o 1string
I get error message:
/usr/bin/ld: i386 architecture of input file `1string.o' is incompatible with i386:x86-64 output
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
Please step by step code how to do it?
Thank you.
