Cool How to remove Openssl in CentOS 6.5?


Hi there,

I am new here and need some help which I am facing. I am unable to remove the openssl from 1.0 as I believed that there are too many dependent on it.

Please advise.

Thank you

Edwin

The best question is "Why???" OpenSSL is a fairly important piece of software...what are you trying to actually accomplish by doing this?

Yes, it is a dependency for a lot of other tools, which means removing it would likely brick your system. As TB0ne said, what is it you're trying to accomplish?

Speaking from experience, yes removing openSSL will brick your system.

Need more information on what your end goal is.

Can't you just compile/install the version you need in a separate directory and then link your application to it? You shouldn't need to actually replace the version that comes on the system, doing so would probably brick the system as it would break the version requirements of everything else.

with 6.5 not being supported and there are NO working repos

your only option to ?? Downgrad???? and install the NOW FIXED SECURITY HOLE

you will REALLY NEED to install the cent SECURITY patches for ssl

build from source BUT install the current 6.7 PATCHES!!!!!!
and as above Build in a secondary build folder for the second version of openssl, and link your project to that
BUT install the security patches to the old code


they will be in the current 6.7 RPMS source rpm's for openssl
