Upgrading OpenSSL rpm install to a source install
I wanted to install the usual LAMP setup with ssl from source, however I already have OpenSSL rpms installed on the system. I could install the newer version of OpenSSL via an rpm, forcing it to ignore the dependencies, but
a. I'm worried that the dependencies will not recognize the new version
b. In the configure script for httpd, I have to specify the openssl source directory, and since I have an rpm install, I can't do that.
Does anybody know of a way to go about doing this without removing openssl along with all of its dependencies?
