make error in 6.8.0-4, but 6.7.9-10 is ok

Post by ditto »

There must have been done some changes in one of the version between ImageMagick 6.7.9-10 and ImageMagick 6.8.0-4, I am not able to run "make" in the newest version. I am running CentOS 6.3 64bit.

When I run "make check" or just "make" on ImageMagick 6.8.0-4 I get this error:

Code: Select all

 CCLD     magick/libMagickCore.la
/usr/bin/ld: /usr/local/lib/libltdl.a(ltdl.o): relocation R_X86_64_32S against `.rodata.str1.8' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
/usr/local/lib/libltdl.a: could not read symbols: Bad value
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [magick/libMagickCore.la] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/ImageMagick-6.8.0-4'
make: *** [all] Error 2
When I run "make check" or just "make" on ImageMagick 6.7.9-10, everything works without any errors.

So what have changed since version 6.7.9-10 that causes this? If you like I can gradually test each older version to find out the exact version between 6.7.9-10 and 6.8.0-4 that introduced this error.

Because I do not get any errors when doing "make" on version 6.7.9-10, but only in the newest version, I believe that this is a "bug" introduced in newer versions of ImageMagick.

I can mention that I also tested version 6.8.0-5 beta, wich also has the same error as in 6.8.0-4. Please help, or let me know what more information you need from me, and I will provide it. Thanks!

Remove --with-modules from your configure script command line or rebuild libltdl with the -fPIC option.

I think i need --with-modules. Why did it work in recent version 6.7.9-10? Its always been working for me until your new version 6.8.0-x. So what has changed? It would be nice if you could change it back.

ImageMagick no longer include the libltdl source distribution. Instead it looks for the distribution on the host its built on.
