I'm trying to build a .deb package with
debuild -i -us -uc -b and in the end I see:
Now running lintian...
warning: the authors of lintian do not recommend running it with root privileges!

Finished running lintian.
I have a hunch that I failed to define a "PIC code setup", which must be at the beginning of each external function:
The following code might appear in a PIC code setup sequence to compute
the distance from a function entry point to the TOC base:
addis 2,12,[email protected]
addi 2,2,[email protected]
as specified by the ABI, page 99.
However I couldn't find the symbols which were non-PIC. Or maybe some relevant file that was not compiled with
system architecture: ppc64le
compiling .so library with: gcc -shared -fPIC
Best How To :
To find which symbols made your elf non-PIC/PIE (Position Independent Code/Executable), use
pax-utils package (on ubuntu, install it with
sudo apt-get install pax-utils):
$ scanelf -qT /usr/local/lib/libluajit-5.1.so.2.1.0 | head -n 3
libluajit-5.1.so.2.1.0: buf_grow [0x7694] in (optimized out: previous lj_BC_MODVN) [0x7600]
libluajit-5.1.so.2.1.0: buf_grow [0x769C] in (optimized out: previous lj_BC_MODVN) [0x7600]
libluajit-5.1.so.2.1.0: buf_grow [0x76A0] in (optimized out: previous lj_BC_MODVN) [0x7600]
$ objdump -Sa /usr/local/lib/libluajit-5.1.so.2.1.0 | grep -A5 \ 7694:
7694: 00 00 80 39 li r12,0
7698: c6 07 8c 79 rldicr r12,r12,32,31
769c: 00 00 8c 65 oris r12,r12,0
76a0: 00 00 8c 61 ori r12,r12,0
76a4: a6 03 89 7d mtctr r12
76a8: 21 04 80 4e bctrl
On my case an absolute address was meant to be load on
r12, but that's not possible for a dynamic library, so the linker used
0 for that parameter (I had to use
@GOT operator, but that's the particular solution to my case).
luajit program, it's possible to define the address on linking time and it looks like this:
1003d0d4: 00 00 80 39 li r12,0
1003d0d8: c6 07 8c 79 rldicr r12,r12,32,31
1003d0dc: 07 10 8c 65 oris r12,r12,4103
1003d0e0: 30 ca 8c 61 ori r12,r12,51760
1003d0e4: a6 03 89 7d mtctr r12
Quite different right?
