Default [solved] at&t assembly question

writing a game in assembly on netbsd.. i'm used to flat assembler, but i'm trying out gas syntax a little bit. its actually not that bad.

my question is this:

in flat assembler i have:
Code:
  MY_OFFSET = $29
  ...
  input:
    rb $ff     ; reserve $ff bytes in .bss
  ...
  mov byte [input + MY_OFFSET], $01
and it works, of course, nothing special there.

BUT in gas i have something like this:
Code:
  .global MY_OFFSET
  .equ MY_OFFSET, 0x29
  ...
  .bss
  .lcomm input, 0xff
  ...
  movb $0x01, input + MY_OFFSET (%rip)
and gas says:
error: invalid operands (*und* and *und* sections) for '+'

if i put the value instead of MY_OFFSET it works
Code:
  movb $0x01, input + 0x29 (%rip)
this works.

whats the proper way to do what i want in gas?

actually. solved it.
.equ was in the different file/section, i though .global would make it properly accessible to the main program, when i put .equ in the same file as the code, it works.
problem solved.
