How to install sharedhostffmpeg on a host running redhat linux while not being root?
I'm on a shared host that is running on Red Hat 4.4.7-3.
All these packages have successfully installed: - presetup.sh, autoconf.sh, automake.sh, libtool.sh, libiconv.sh, libpng.sh, libjpeg.sh, zlib.sh, libwmf.sh, freetype.sh, gettext.sh, gd.sh, ruby.sh, flvtool2.sh, lame.sh, codecs.sh, libogg.sh, libvorbis.sh, vorbis-tools.sh, libtheora.sh, amrnb.sh, amrwb.sh, liba52.sh, facc.sh, faad2.sh.
That's exactly all the files just before ffmpeg itself!
I know the error has to do with a library. However, I'm not familiar with libraries. The error message says:
/usr/bin/ld: /home/xxxxx/lib/libz.a(compress.o): relocation R_X86_64_32 against `.rodata.str1.1' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC /home/xxxxx/lib/libz.a: could not read symbols: Bad value
BUT, when I look at my zlib log file(sharedhostffmpeg.1.0.2.log.15939), no errors show up.
Does anyone know how to recompile with fPIC?
