powerpc executable size limit question

Sorry for posting twice, but I inadvertantly forgot to put a subject in the mail.  I not a subscriber to the list,
and after posting this I looked at the archives and saw the number of unwanted messages.   I thought I'd better make sure that my message wasn't ignored.  Thanks.


I hope this is an appropriate place for this question.

We are using

Linux Kernel 2.4.4 (Yellow Dog Linux 2.0) for PowerPC
gcc 2.95.2
binutils 2.10
glibc 2.2.1

We've got a huge executable which gets the following error when it tries to run:

/ipnos.nohw.ctl: error while loading shared libraries: /dvlp/hpoliset/sharedLibs/libOB.so.3.3.4: R_PPC_REL24 relocation at 0x0e2c7000 for symbol `g_varRC11OBStrForSeq' out of range

When I do a 'size' of the executable I get a text size over 30MB.  When I do a size of the shared library, I get something over 3MB.  It looks to me as though the library was built with the -fPIC option.

Are we hitting a limit in the size of a linked executable for Linux on PPC?  We've hit a limit of 32MB for statically linked images.  Does this also apply when the image is dynamically linked as well?

You _may_ encounter problems responding to this mail, due to our corporate IT folks :-{  If so, could you please respond to me at address@hidden
