Lightbulb yum remove openssl issue


Hi,

I just executed: yum remove openssl on my virtual test Centos.
I'd like to revert settings back to as it was at the beginning, i mean having all commands again.
Now i don't have ls, wget, yum, find, rpm...etc.

Any idea how to get my Centos back?

thanks

yum uses openssl to authenticate packages from the repos so removing it will totally break your package management system. I cannot think of any reason to remove it.

backup your data and reinstall ...

Thanks Simon, actually i was trying to install bind dns 9.7P2 and a message was saying that it couldn't found opensslh.v (not sure about file name) so i removed it

I'll reinstall the OS.

regards.

You needed to install openssl.h - a header file. Its is the openssl development libs (usually libssl-dev or something like that). I take it the CentOS packaged BIND did not do what you wanted?

SSL = Secure Sockets Layer

see why it is important?

In general, if something tells you you don't have stuff, removing more stuff won't help. You have to add stuff.

Even I made this mistake 2-3 years ago . Thank God, it was not a production box. Actually, openssl has many dependencies which further are dependent on basic system packages.

That is why never use yum to remove openssl. You might try using "rpm -e"
