Hello everyone~I just install MMSIM7.1 with IC5141_USR6 and try to simulation a simple circuit, but when I finish all settings go "netlist and run". It stopped at CIW and showed the following message"errors encountered during simulation. the simulator run log has not been generated. Possible cause could be an invalid command line option for the version of the simulator you are running. choose setup ->environment and verify that the command line option specified in the userCmdLineOption field are supported for the simulator. Alternatively run the simulator standalone using the runSimulation file in the netlist directory to know the exact cause of the error."
and then I run the runsimulation and get a message "/usr/cad/cadence/MMSIM/cur/tools.lnx86/spectre/bin/32bit/spectre: error while loading shared libraries: libelf.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"I don't know how to fix this problem. I probably made some mistakes at somewhere.Please give me some advise !!
# rpm -qa | grep elfutils
If elfutils is installed, add it to your library path, otherwise refer to this post: http://www.cadence.com/Community/forums/p/14360/24264.aspx#24264 (except search for the shared object you need)
In reply to tkhan:
Hi tkhan~thank you for your help!!
I have fixed the libelf.so.1 problem!!
But, there is another problem when I Exit CIW my terminal windows will show " libgcc_s.so.1 must be installed for pthread_cancel to work", is it ignorable ?
How can I fix this problem?

Hi Andrew~~thank you for your advice.
Your experience is very useful~~~
I can use the program normally now!!!
I'm trying to run Cadence 5.1.41 Analog environment on CentOS 5.5. I have got the following message error running spectre
/home/User/Cadence5.1.41/MMSIM7.11/tools.lnx86/spectre/bin/32bit/spectre: error while loading shared libraries: libelf.so.1: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
Please, could you explain how to fix it?
In reply to pecola:
It's probably just picking up the 64 bit version of libelf.so.1 (which is in /usr/lib64) (maybe you have $LD_LIBRARY_PATH including that directory) but you'll need the 32 bit version of this library. On my machine:
UNIX> rpm -q -f /usr/lib/libelf.so.1elfutils-libelf-0.125-3.el5.i386
Note that CentOS 5.5 is not a supported distribution and so no testing has been done on it, and no patch data files are provided for it either.
Yes, you're right.
I fixed it!
I also have issue with "libelf.so.1"
"error while loading shared libraries: libelf.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
I dont have "libelf.so.1 inside /usr/lib. Then I did what you have said:
# ~> rpm -qa | grep elfutils
Does this result means that I have it on my system. How should I add it on my library path? (I'm using SUSE by the way)
Kindly help me..
