Lintian ReportsBETA


Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.232. That is the most recent version we know about.

The listed shared libraries contain object code that was compiled without -fPIC. All object code in shared libraries should be recompiled separately from the static libraries with the -fPIC option.

Another common mistake that causes this problem is linking with gcc -Wl,-shared instead of gcc -shared.

In some cases, exceptions to this rule are warranted. If this is such a case, follow the procedure outlined in Policy and then please document the exception by adding a Lintian override to this package.

To check whether a shared library has this problem, run readelf -d on the shared library. If a tag of type TEXTREL is present, the shared library contains non-PIC code.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 10.2 for details.
