Question Linking problem while linking to shared library

I'm getting

ld: fatal: option -h and building a dynamic executable are incompatible
ld: fatal: Flags processing errors

When I run

ld -shared -L/usr/dt/lib -lDtSvc -o Workspace.o

after running

gcc -fPIC -I/usr/X11R6/include -I/usr/dt/include -c Workspace.c

I'm running on
ld: Software Generation Utilities - Solaris-ELF (4.0)
gcc, g++ - GNU project C and C++ Compiler (gcc-2.95)

Can anyone please help me!!!

There is no such thing as -shared. ld sees that as -s -h ....

Do you mean -G?

Hi Perderabo
Yes I meant -G, the -shared was an option I found while I was searching with "ask jeewes for shared libraries. Yes I meant -G, the -shared was an option I found while I was searching with "ask jeewes"

Hi, iam Mani

You can try with the Option -Wl,-shared for linking..

try it

all the best.

I don't have the option -W in my version of ld

not -W try for -Wl ok..

What I did was
ld -Wl -L/usr/dt/lib -lDtSvc -o Workspace.o
and then I got
