Licq and RedHat 7.1


While trying to install the rpm for Licq, I get an error saying I need libcrypto.so.O and libssl.so.O. I have libcrypto.so.0.9.6 and libssl.so.0.9.6.

This is the same problem addressed in this post - Installation problems: licq & OpenSSL .

The reply says to make symbolic links to the files I need. I created these dummy files and see them and my originals in /usr/lib, but still get the same errors. Should I put them someplace else - like just /lib? And can symbolic links screw things up?

The Licq I am trying to install is 1.0.3-1.i386

Any ideas would help - thanks in advance!!

For anyone else who may have had this problem--

I got an older version and it worked fine.

And for anyone else contemplating using LICQ, compiling it from source will give you come cool intergration with your chosen desktop that you don't get with an rpm.

licq.org.
The readme and install files in the tarball have all the goods on optimising for gnome or kde.
