Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

m trying to istall chimera on planet lab but i am geting this problem when i execute the make command
openssl/evp.h: no scuch file
when i update openssl using yum it is showing nothing needs to be done
OK - now that we're in the right place I'll answer your question:
You need to install openssl-devel in addtion to openssl
First run "rpm -q openssl-devel" to make sure it isn't already installed.
If it is you can run "rpm -ql openssl-devel |grep evp.h" to see where the file is.
If it is not installed you can run "yum install openssl-devel" to install it (assuming you have internet connectivity).
As a side note:
yum whatprovides evp.h
Would show you which packages contain this header file. "yum whatprovides" is sort of like doing a grep through all the repositories to see what is out there. You have to be fairly specific or you might get tons of hits. (e.g. "yum whatprovides ls" wouldn't just show you the package that had the ls command but any package that provided any file in which the characters "l" and "s" were adjacent such as "cols", "slawdog", "misslecommand"). evp.h being a specific header file was less likely to match hundreds of items though it will likely show you the same package multiple times.
When you see packages such as "openssl-devel.i386" you can ignore the "i386" as that is the architecture - just telling it "openssl-devel" on the install will find the correct architecture for you.
P.S. Wasn't trying to annoy you by making you post another thread - its just that by opening a new thread it goes to zero replies so lots of people can see it and help you if they know the answer.
