RE: Errors building shared lib...

Using the -fPIC worked, but now I've run into something else...... :-/
When I load the shared object thru another app. and call
some interface, I get an error.... ./testapp: fatal : relocation error: file
/blahblahblah/ symbol XTLInit: referenced symbol not found

Now this symbol XTLInit is defined in my static library XtlLib which I had
linked to  So why does it say symbol not found???

PS: There is one thing I think might be the cause but I'm not sure, when
building my test application that loads the shared lib, I got an error
saying not found, so I had downloaded it from but it's for
Sol 7 and I'm using Solaris 8.  Could this be the problem?? Where can I get for Sol 8?

You may want to try using -fPIC

Subject: Errors building shared lib...

	I had built an application earlier using gcc2.95 on Solaris8, the
command was...
	gcc register.o -L. -lXtlLib -lXrtlLib -lXenvhlpLib -lSnmpAuxiLib
-lSnmpLib -lXsnmpLib -lsocket -lnsl -lXsnmpLib -lSnmpLib -lSnmpAuxiLib
-lXenvhlpLib -lXrtlLib -lXtlLib -o TrapRegister
	(the libraries have been repeated to avoid circular referencing)
	but now I basically need to convert the functionality of my app
"TrapRegister" to a shared library.  So I basically removed the main() from
my .c file and did the necessary things to export the interfaces and
compiled to give the .o.  Tried to build my shared library by saying...
	gcc -L. -L. -lXtlLib -lXrtlLib -lXenvhlpLib -lSnmpAuxiLib -lSnmpLib
-lXsnmpLib -lsocket -lnsl -lXsnmpLib -lSnmpLib -lSnmpAuxiLib -lXenvhlpLib
-lXrtlLib -lXtlLib -shared -o register.o
	but I get a whole bunch of linking errors as shown in errors.txt
(file attached).
	Is there something wrong with my command, (I used the same approach
on AIX4.3 using gcc 2.95 and it worked fine.)
	Can someone help me out here please.
