[mod_python] cannot compile mod_python on 64bit AMD processor

I think I found an answer to my own question.

On AMD x86_64, when I am linking a static library into a shared library,
position-dependent code in a shared library is not supported.

So I recompiled python with --enable-shared option, so that there is no
static library libpython2.4.a at all, and it worked.


I wonder if --enable-shared option causes any performance loss?

I am trying to compile mod_python 3.3.1 on an AMD 64bit CPU


This is what I get:


): relocation R_X86_64_32 against `a local symbol' can not be used when
making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC

/usr/local/encap/python-2.4.1/lib/python2.4/config/libpython2.4.a: could not
read symbols: Bad value

#uname -a

#gcc --version

gcc (SUSE Linux) 4.3.1 20080507 (prerelease) [gcc-4_3-branch revision


Any help?
