You need either or both of
openssl-0.9.7b
openssl-solibs-0.9.7b
or possibly could recompile gkrellm without ssl. If you do have those packages, it's a path or permissions problem, probably. (Say that three times fast.)

I downloaded openssl-0.9.7b rpm but when i tried installing I get an error that it conflicts with an earlier version already installed ??

I tried searching for libssl.so. with "find / libssl.so." form root but it reports nothing found ?

Seems to contradict the error message.

What a pain in the backside !

Just looked in /usr/lib and I have :

libss.so.0
libss.so.0.1.4
libssl.so.0
libssl.so.0.9.6

Why didnt the "find" command locate these ?
Anyway I the last one was what openssl-0.9.7b was conflicting with

I'm stumped <again>

Well, maybe something like 'find / -iregex .*libssl.*'. I tend to use 'locate' or a shell script called 'sp' to check /var/log/packages or the manifest, but that's Slack-specific. Seems the issue is that you have libssl.so.0.9.6 and gkrellm wants 0.9.7. Given that it's SuSE and rpm's, I don't really know what to say. You should be okay uninstalling 0.9.6 and installing 0.9.7 but I definitely couldn't guarantee it. If you can install the thing to /usr/local/lib and point gkrellm there, that might work. If you could mess with the gkrellm source (if it's not an rpm) that might work. Sometimes I find that apps have something hardcoded but it doesn't need to be and symlinking 0.9.6 to an '0.9.7' will work. Then again, if it really does need that specific version, it can blow up. Anyway - my best guess is just to upgrade openssl rather than simply installing, but a SuSE expert could probably tell you better.

Yer i tried uninstalling 0.9.6 and got a **heap** load of stuff that "needs" it !
I dont have the experience to go and force uninstalling 0.9.6 just in case i have problems installing 0.9.7 then end up knee deep in the proverbial !

I suppose I just forgot about Gkrellm

Thanks for the help anyway digiot

Okay. Not forcing it's probably a good idea. Sorry I couldn't be more help. As a last resort, you could try an older version of gkrellm - maybe it'd be satisfied with an older libssl.

i use suse 8.2 personal with gkrellm. i downloaded the rpm from http://gkrellm.net.
the package i'm using is 2.1.28 and it works great, installed with no problems...might wanna give that a try?

*edit...
if you scroll down the page a bit at gkrellm.net, you'll find the link to download the rpm specifically for suse 8.2.

Just an update just in case anyone has experienced similar problems:

I got Ksim working form the gnome menu but it a little shitty and didnt support themes very well.

When i tried uninstalling the gkrellm (current Ksim) It was saying that it wasnt installed !
The problem was that I was trying "rpm -e <version number>"

So I tried just "rpm -e gkrellm" (which must have had a symlink to Ksim somewhere I beleive) and it uninstalled just fine.

I then installed the latest gkrellm rpm and hey presto no dependency problems everything works fine and all the themes look great too.

Hope this helps anyone else who has had the same problem.

Cheers.
