Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 131130
need to build libXdmcp as PIC
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:48 EST
Description of problem:
GDM is built as a PIC executable, and it links in libXdmcp. Therefore
libXdmcp needs to be built as PIC.
<walters> mharris: can you build xdmcp as PIC?
<mharris> walters: libXdmcp?
<walters> mharris: yep
<mharris> it isn't already?
<walters> mharris: apparently not
<mharris> file a bugzilla. should be a one line Imakefile patch
<mharris> adding $(PICFLAGS) IIRC
<walters> in rh bz or upstream?
<mharris> make sure I'm on CC
Fixed in 6.8.1-2 in internal CVS, will be in rawhide soon, please
test and report back. Set status to RAWHIDE if problem is resolved
*** Bug 132903 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
6.8.1-3 is now in dist-fc3, which should be pushed to rawhide
whenever the next sync to rawhide is. libXdmcp.a should now be
properly built with PIC flags.
Please test, and set status to RAWHIDE or ASSIGNED.
Thanks in advance.
Works fine, thanks.
