Compiling Audio::TagLib

Rodster001 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


I am running into an issue when compiling Audio::TagLib and I am at a loss (I have tried using cpan to install and manually downloading, both are failing). I am getting an error to recompile with a different flag, but I am not sure how to do this or why this is even an issue. I do not fully understand the problem nor how to fix.

chmod 644 rm -f blib/arch/auto/Audio/TagLib/ g++ -shared -L/usr/local/lib -fstack-protector -Wl,-E -fPIC TagLib.o + -o blib/arch/auto/Audio/TagLib/ \ -L/usr/local/lib -ltag -lz \ /usr/bin/ld: /usr/local/lib/libtag.a(mpegfile.cpp.o): relocation R_X86 +_64_32S against `_ZTVN6TagLib4MPEG4FileE' can not be used when making + a shared object; recompile with -fPIC /usr/local/lib/libtag.a: error adding symbols: Bad value collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status make: *** [blib/arch/auto/Audio/TagLib/] Error 1

Any help would GREATLY be appreciated!


UPDATE: Downgrading Taglib to 1.11 fixed the issue (see my reply below)

    /usr/bin/ld: /usr/local/lib/libtag.a(mpegfile.cpp.o): relocation R_X86 ....

    If libtag.a is a static library, you need to add -DTAGLIB_STATIC to the compiler flags. (I do this by providing a DEFINE=-DTAGLIB_STATIC argument to the 'perl Makefile.PL' command.)
    However, I don't know if that relates to the error message you received and, since a downgrade to version 1.11 is likely of little importance, it probably doesn't matter ;-)

    I am not sure what the issue is here. But I had TagLib 1.11.1 installed. I downloaded and installed TagLib 1.11 and that fixed the problem.
