GLFW linux linking error

When i try to build my application on linux, at the linking stage i get the following error "/usr/bin/ld: /home/csunix/ll15clp/Desktop/My_Game_Engine/Dependencies/GLFW/libglfw3.a(context.c.o): unrecognized relocation (0x2a) in section `.text’ "

I’m not certain, but this sounds like libglfw3.a was built using a different toolset than the one you’re using. Have you tried building GLFW from source with cmake?
