By the way... whenever you are building/compiling shared objects you
should use -fPIC, and when you are building static stuff, make sure
you never use -fPIC.
Hope it helps,

The answer is quite simple, you need to add -fPIC to the compiler
flags, then try again, see if it works ;)
If it doesn't work, let us know, I'm sure we can go a bit further on this.

As I've blasted across the universe, I'm trying to package a set of
computer forensic apps.
I'm tracking my progress here.
The next one on my list is pyflag. I have a package in OBS:
home:gregfreemyer:Tools-for-forensic-boot-cd > pyflag
But the build is failing in the INSTALL section with:
gcc -shared -I/usr/include/python2.7 -I../../src/include -L
-lpython2.7 -o pypacket.so pypacket.c .libs/pypacket.a -lpthread -ldl

I have unpacked the tarball and manually done "./configure; make; make
install" and I get the same error.
If I cd into "pyflag-0.87-pre1/src/lib" and then do a make pypacket.so
(which seems to be the goal of the above gcc command), I get the exact
So I'm in the right place, but I don't know how to debug this any further.
I've attached the Makefile from pyflag-0.87-pre1/src/lib folder.
Can anyone help me with that?
