openssl version downgrading


Hi,
i am using RHEL 6.0
My installed openssl are:

rpm -qa | grep -i openssl

openssl-1.0.0-20.el6.x86_64
openssl098e-0.9.8e-17.el6.x86_64
pyOpenSSL-0.10-2.el6.x86_64

My current version is:
openssl version

OpenSSL 1.0.0-fips 29 Mar 2010

i want "openssl098e-0.9.8e-17.el6.x86_64" to be my current version. Kindly guide how to achieve this.

I tried to remove the current version 1.0 but it has many other dependencies and those cant be ignored.

thanks in advance.

Sorry. Wrong question: you should not downgrade but upgrade to current. *If you think you have a valid reason to downgrade anyway then please present them here.

hi unSpawn,

The reason to downgrade is that my application needs that version 0.9.8. Although i have installed now both the versions of openssl, still my current version is the upgraded one(1.0) and not 0.9.8.
If there is a way out to make my current version as 0.9.8 while 1.0 is still installed, may kindly suggest.

Question. Does the program in question need the programs from openssl, or does it need the libraries?

Libraries-wise,.. you can just unpackage openssl 0.9.8 and move libssl.so.0.9.8 and libcrypto.so.0.9.8 to your correct lib directory, and run ldd.

Running two versions of openssl would be a hassle, im sure someone with more hacking experience could walk you through that.

OK. Before we get into details some more questions:
What's the application name and version number?
Was it installed using RPM package management?

What error does the application return when you run it?
And if it's a binary what does 'ldd /path/to/binary' return?

Is a .src.rpm available to recompile it against the new OpenSSL version or is it possible to ask the developer / vendor?
