Question Librarys


I'm reasonably new to Linux and I'm running RedHat 9.0 and have been trying to install an IRC program that I downloaded.

When I try to install the RPM is says that there were the following failed dependencies:

libcrypto.so.2
libssl.so.2

After a quick search in Google, I discover that those librarys are part of the OpenSSL package. So I successfully downloaded the source code configured, compiled, and installed it.

Then I try installing the RPM again. Same dependencies. I did a file search on my hard drive for "libcrypto" and "libssl" get the following results:

/usr/lib/libcrypto.a
/usr/lib/libcrypto.so
/usr/local/ssl/lib/libcrypto.a
/lib/libcrypto.so.4
/lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.7a

/usr/lib/libssl3.so
/usr/lib/libssl.a
/usr/lib/libssl.so
/usr/local/ssl/lib/libssl.a
/lib/libssl.so.4
/lib/libssl.so.0.9.7a

I also tryed installing the RPM with the --nodeps option and got the following error when I tryed to execute the program:

error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Do I need an older version of the libraries to install this RPM?

I'm having a similar problem when trying to install the xmps video player.

If you install new libraries, you need to update the libraries database: after installing, run ldconfig

Thanks, but it didn't make any difference.

I ran ldconfig in verbose mode, and it listed the libraries that I need. Is there anything else I can try?

You could try to install rpm's instead of compiling the source.
You can find the rpm's you'll need on your redhat cd's or on www.rpmfind.net.
Make sure you uninstall the sources first before installing rpm's
