Hey,

Have you tried finding an RPM for openssl yet? RPMs are generall easier to install as they usually only require one command and don't involve any compiling.

there is an openssl RPM at http://rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/mandra...2mdk.i586.html to install it you would type (as root) 'rpm -ivh openssl-0.9.7b-4.2.92mdk.i586.rpm'

Having said that you can also compile and install the package you have:

Installing software on linux for hte first time can be a pretty tricky task. Once you get used to it, thought, it gets a lot easier. I am assuming that you have downloaded a standard tarball (.tar.gz or .tar.bz2 extension). The steps for installing software like this are pretty straightforward, but confusing for first timers.

Since you can read the INSTALL file, I assume you already know how to unpack the file, right? I would unpack the file in /usr/src or some place in your home directory. Then you will need to open a command line and move into the directory that you unpacked the file into (/usr/src/openssl or /home/<you>/openssl). The most important thing to remember is that you have to be root to perform the installation steps (type 'su' to become root).

In the openssl/ directory:

type 'make'

This will compile the sources in the package and create binaries that can be installed.

type 'make test'

This step isn't necesarry except that it is a safe guard to make sure the binaries are in good condition and work.

type 'make install'

This copies the binaries that you have compiled into place where they will work.

thanks for your replay, but...i did what you wrote [...you would type (as root) 'rpm -ivh openssl-0.9.7b-4.2.92mdk.i586.rpm'.] and it failed.
there is what it wrote:
==================
[root@142687 tmp]# rpm -ivh openssl-0.9.7b-4.2.92mdk.i586.rpm
warning: openssl-0.9.7b-4.2.92mdk.i586.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 2245 8a98
error: Failed dependencies:
libopenssl0.9.7 = 0.9.7b-4.2.92mdk is needed by openssl-0.9.7b-4.2.92mdk
[root@142687 tmp]#
[root@142687 tmp]# rpm -ivh openssl-0.9.7b-4.2.92mdk.i586.rpm

==================
I have no idea what was wrong...

Probably the biggest problem with rpms is the lack of dependecy resolution. It looks like this package requires at least on dependency that you don't have installed:

error: Failed dependencies:
libopenssl0.9.7 = 0.9.7b-4.2.92mdk is needed by openssl-0.9.7b-4.2.92mdk

Heading back on over to rpmfind.net, I found this package for libssl: http://rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/mandra...3mdk.i586.html

It is possible, even likely, that you will need more depencendies than this, rpmfind is a good place to search for rpm packages to install. Make sure you get i586 packages for mandrake if you download any from that site.

Hope that helps.
