Description Simon Lanzmich 2005-11-27 13:15:17 EST
When I tried to compile gstreamer (0.9.4 and also later versions) on FC4 on
x86_64, it gave me the following error:
relocation R_X86_64_32 against `a local symbol' can not be used when making a
shared object; recompile with -fPIC
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.0.1/../../../../lib64/libcheck.a: could not
read symbols: Bad value

I was told that this was a problem with check and that I should ask for check
being recompiled with -fPIC.

This is the corresponding bug on bugzilla.gnome.org (#320756):

Should be fixed in check-0.9.3-3.
