libcrypto and libssl


Well, I'm trying to install a program again, and am having trouble with it finding the dependencies required. The program is called "drivel", and is a client for www.livejournal.com. I'm currently using the other client, called LogJam, and it works fine, but drivel is a better client, and I would like to upgrade to it.

Well, first off, when installing the RPM for drivel, it complains about me needing two files that I am missing.

libcrypto.so.0
libssl.so.0

After reading around online, it seems to be that these files are installed when you install openssl. I downloaded the source for openssl, extracted it, and configured it for my particular system. It installs perfectly, but still does not install the two aforementioned files that are supposed to be installed along with openssl. I did see a forum on another site that had someone else baffled about the same thing, but no one could solve the problem. Hoping someone here will know what to do.

code:
-----
[root@cs6625135-156 openssl-0.9.7b]# whereis libcrypto.so.0
libcrypto.so: /lib/libcrypto.so.4 /lib/libcrypto.so.2 /usr/lib/libcrypto.so /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.1

[root@cs6625135-156 openssl-0.9.7b]# whereis libssl.so.0
libssl.so: /lib/libssl.so.4 /lib/libssl.so.2 /usr/lib/libssl.so /usr/lib/libssl.so.1

[root@cs6625135-156 drivel]# rpm -i drivel*.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libcrypto.so.0 is needed by drivel-0.9.1-1
libssl.so.0 is needed by drivel-0.9.1-1

another question which you have not searched the answer::
do
rpm -ivh --nodeps drivel*.rpm
if it does not work
do a ln -snf /lib/libcryto(or ssl).so /lib/libcryto(or ssl).so.0
