compile FIFE on linux 64Bit
« on: August 19, 2010, 07:35:23 am »

Hi Everybody,
i'm new in the FIFE community. I would like to try FIFE but i have problem to compile it.
I try compilation on a Linux Ubuntu 10.4 64bit edition.
When I use the scons command, I have the error :

/usr/bin/ld: /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-linux-gnu/4.4.3/../../../../lib/libpython2.6.a(abstract.o): relocation R_X86_64_32 against `.rodata.str1.8' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-linux-gnu/4.4.3/../../../../lib/libpython2.6.a: could not read symbols: Bad value

After search on google, I read that error is perhaps caused by compatibility problem with 64bit version, but i don't understand how get around the problem.

If someone can help me...

We had a similar report here about 64bit windows ->

Solution seems to be to use a 32bit version of python.
