#9478 closed Patch - Bug Fix (Fixed)

[PATCH] configure for PowerPC doesn't set -fPIC

Reported by: Lawrence Rust <lvr@…> Owned by: Janne Grunau
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.25
Component: MythTV - configure script Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


If ./configure is run on a PowerPC/Linux system then the -fPIC compiler flag is not set for building shared libraries. This results in runtime errors from when loading those shared objects.

PS configure also fails to detect the cpu of a Mac B/W G3 when passed --cpu=host. Building with --cpu=g3 works fine. $ uname -m ppc

$ uname -p unknown

$ cat /proc/cpuinfo processor : 0 cpu : 740/750 temperature : 11-13 C (uncalibrated) clock : 400.000000MHz revision : 130.1 (pvr 0008 8201) bogomips : 49.86 timebase : 24934600 platform : PowerMac? model : PowerMac1,1 machine : PowerMac1,1 motherboard : PowerMac1,1 MacRISC Power Macintosh detected as : 66 (Blue&White G3) pmac flags : 00000000 L2 cache : 1024K unified pmac-generation : NewWorld?
