I'm running into this error after a recent update of the OS but cannot pinpoint the source of the problem.
Here is the logfile (ahdmcmi.out) but again I'm not sure what the issue is:

Any help on this?
As a complete guess, have you tried running in 32-bit? I don't work with ahdlcmi, so this may not be of any help...

In reply to samini:
You are using an extremely old version of MMSIM... 7.1 - it hasn't been supported in years.
The current version is 12.1.1. Please upgrade to at least the latest 11.1 ISR (and really you should be on 12.1 ... 13.1 is coming out soon.)
You may want to look at Cadence Online Support http://support.cadence.com article 11151116.

In reply to Tawna:
One more thing... this is off the top of my head....check to see if you have this environment variable set: CDS_AHDLCMI_ENABLE
setenv CDS_AHDLCMI_ENABLE NO
Also, if you have these env variables set, be sure to unset them:
When I see the "ld:acrti.o: No such file or directory" (and it's been years since I've seen this) the issue is typically with the LinuxOS. The 32 bit glibc package is most likely not installed.
What happens if you run spectre 64 bit in the command line?
linux> spectre -64 input.scs
Hi thank you for all the suggestion.
1) I don't think there is an issue with the glibc package because I can run:
linux-gate.so.1 => (0xf7768000) libnsl.so.1 => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/i686/cmov/libnsl.so.1 (0xf7730000) libpthread.so.0 => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/i686/cmov/libpthread.so.0 (0xf7717000) libdl.so.2 => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/i686/cmov/libdl.so.2 (0xf7712000) libstdc++.so.5 => /CMC/tools/cadence/IC.5141.USR5.linux/tools/lib/libstdc++.so.5 (0xf765e000) libm.so.6 => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/i686/cmov/libm.so.6 (0xf7638000) libgcc_s.so.1 => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgcc_s.so.1 (0xf761b000) libc.so.6 => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/i686/cmov/libc.so.6 (0xf74b8000) /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xf7769000)

2) I tried to setenv CDS_AHDLCMI_ENABLE NO and still the same issue.
3) spectre -64 input.scs is interesting, it seems to complain about all the models and then fail.

RE: ldd /CMC/tools/cadence/IC.5141.USR5.linux/tools.lnx86/spectre/bin/32bit/spectre
1. You do not want to use ic5141 spectre...ever. That technology hasn't been supported in over 10 years! You have to use spectre from the MMSIM hierarchy. And you should be using MMSIM 12.1.1 spectre.
2. You should upgrade to the latest IC5141ISR. (something beyond USR6). Better yet, get on IC6.1.6 (but I realize that may not be possible, depending on your site.)
3. You mentioned that the OS was recently updated. Please download the checkSysConf utility from Cadence Online Support http://support.cadence.com . You need to make sure that the system has all the required patches. The software won't run properly if checkSysConf fails.
4. Please consider contacting Customer Support - this sort of thing really is best handled by a Support AE who can dedicate time to resolving this for you.
The issue with crti.o not being found is covered in this solution 11562788 . The file should be at: /usr/lib/crti.o . On my machine I see:
UNIX> rpm -q -f /usr/lib/crti.oglibc-devel-2.12-1.25.el6.i686
So it's provided by the glibc-devel rpm. You need to see if you have that installed. More recent MMSIM versions check that if you run checkSysConf from the <MMSIMinstDir>/tools/bin (I don't think it did with MMSIM70, from a quick check of the patch data file in an MMSIM70 installation I have locally).
