I'm working on a shared library with a various of dependency libraries.
They are all currently linked dynamically (shared object).
I'd like a few of the libraries linked statically TO the main shared object.
When I go ahead and try to link these libraries (.a) I get an error from ld:
/usr/local/lib/libTest.a(...): relocation R_X86_64_32S against 'vtable for ...' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC. /usr/local/lib/libTest.a: could not read symbols: Bad value
Nothing is wrong with that static library (libTest.a) though, it works if I link it along with my main shared object, to some client executable.
I tried to add -fPIC to my CXX flags, as was suggested.
How to I help this problem - if it is possible? :)
