Description Alex Butcher 2011-09-09 06:12:20 EDT
Description of problem:

From the dhcp-4.1.1-12.P1.el6_0.4.src.rpm package changelog:
* Fri Nov 10 2006 David Cantrell <dcantrell@redhat.com> - 12:3.0.5-2
- Pass -fPIC instead of -fpie/-fPIE in compiler flags

From the dhcp.spec:
CFLAGS="%{optflags} -fno-strict-aliasing -fPIE -D_GNU_SOURCE" \

Building the libraries with -fPIE instead of -fPIC means they cannot be used to build Perl modules, for example.

Alex, will you be willing to test new packages (architecture ?) to see whether
the problem is fixed in your environment ?
Comment 7 Alex Butcher 2011-09-14 05:38:27 EDT
Hi Jiri - sure, we can test. x86_64 is best for us, thanks.
Comment 8 Alex Butcher 2011-10-03 05:51:31 EDT
Sorry for the delay. I've passed it to a (busy) colleague for testing in his environment.
