Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

well.. that netatalk rpm requires that exactly library name. while officially you should download and install the rpm that provides that, it's a lot easier to first try creating a symlink to that library, as it's unliekly to cause a problem. find what versions of libcrypto you have, in /usr/lib or similar,. and creating a symlink from the base .so library (there are liekly to be a number of links already there, for slightly different names. So "ln -s /usr/lib/libcrypto.so /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.6.1" for example. if that works, then super...
No luck there. I tried the link as you wrote (it all seemed to fit with what I had), but no difference, even after a reboot. libcrypt.so seemed to be a link itself to ../../lib/libcrypt.co.1 so I tried making a link directly to that but no difference. Also tried placing the link into the same directory as the rpm, but nothing again.
yes you can use i386 on i686. you can also use the "--target" flag when using rpmbuild to specify an architecture. An example would be "rpmbuild --rebuild --target i686 package.srpm". If I've made an error in my example read the rpmbuild manpage coz I'm not using an rpm based distro whilst sending this post so I have not verified whether it's absolutely correct.
