I’m trying to run J9 on a Gumstix device, so I have a couple of questions. For the moment I just installed j9 on the MMC card and set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to the right directory. After that I tried to launch j9, but I always get this error:
 
# j9
Can't modify /mnt/mmc/j9/bin/libj9vm23.so's text section. Use GCC option -fPIC for shared objects, please.
 
Can somebody explain me what’s wrong?
 

Thank you for your help.
