Description Ludwig Nussel 2012-01-24 15:50:50 UTC
virtualbox triggered the rpmlint check
"non-position-independent-executable" which means there are one or
more binaries that need to be compiled as position independent

To fix the issue add -fPIE to CFLAGS and -pie to LDFLAGS of the
binaries in question.
Comment 1 Ludwig Nussel 2012-02-27 13:41:36 UTC
the package will fail to build next month due to this
