Description Colin Walters 2004-08-27 20:14:35 UTC
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> doh
<walters> mharris:
<mharris> file a bugzilla.  should be a one line Imakefile patch
<mharris> adding $(PICFLAGS) IIRC
<walters> in rh bz or upstream?
<mharris> either
<walters> ok
<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

Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2004-09-21 05:07:05 UTC
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.
