wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64 Killed

I was upgrading to Oracle Applications to R12 (12.1.1) on Solaris 10 64-bit Operating System.

While invoking adadmin utility after sourcing the R12 apps environment, I faced the following error:

bash-3.00$ adadmin adadmin: fatal: /oracle02/appsdev/R12/apps/tech_st/10.1.2/lib/ wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64

Tried doing the below:

bash-3.00$ $ORACLE_HOME/bin/genclntsh -32
cat: cannot open /oracle02/appsdev/R12/apps/tech_st/10.1.3/lib32/ldflags

ld: fatal: Symbol referencing errors. No output written to /oracle02/appsdev/R12/apps/tech_st/10.1.3/lib32/

@Per ‘unpublished’ Bug 5665338 – This issue is due to the library not being present under the 10.1.2 ORACLE_HOME/lib32 folder.

To fix the issue,  I did the following:

1.  Created a symbolic link

bash-3.00$ rm $ORACLE_HOME/lib32/ldflags
bash-3.00$ ln -s $ORACLE_HOME/lib/ldflags $ORACLE_HOME/lib32/ldflags
bash-3.00$ ls -ltr $ORACLE_HOME/lib32/ldflags
lrwxrwxrwx   1 appsdev  oracle         53 Apr  4 09:17 /oracle02/appsdev/R12/apps/tech_st/10.1.2/lib32/ldflags -> /oracle02/appsdev/R12/apps/tech_st/10.1.2/lib/ldflags

2. As root user, created a soft link

bash-3.00$ which make
bash-3.00$  ln -s /usr/css/bin/make /usr/bin/make

2.  Tested the fix

bash-3.00$ $ genclntsh

3.  The above genclntsh command completed without error, then relinked all of the software

bash-3.00$ relink all

Check if library has been created under the 10.1.2 ORACLE_HOME/lib32 folder.

bash-3.00$  ls -ltr $ORACLE_HOME/lib32/
-rwxr-xr-x   1 appsdev  oracle    18681000 Apr  4 09:23 /oracle02/appsdev/R12/apps/tech_st/10.1.2/lib32/

Invoked ad utlilities now:

bash-3.00$ adadmin

                     Copyright (c) 2002 Oracle Corporation
                        Redwood Shores, California, USA

                     Oracle Applications AD Administration

                                 Version 12.0.0

NOTE: You may not use this utility for custom development
      unless you have written permission from Oracle Corporation.

Your default directory is '/oracle02/appsdev/R12/apps/apps_st/appl'.
Is this the correct APPL_TOP [Yes] ?

The problem got fixed for me.
