Re: Powerpc64 does not generate copy relocation for shared library variable
I was expecting same behavior from ppc64 as on ppc32.
Dynamic executables, however, are generally not created from
Any references to external data they make can seemingly only be achieved at
runtime by modifying the code that makes the reference.
Modifying a read-only text segment is to be avoided. The *copy* relocation
technique can solve this reference.
