can't install xsupplicant - dependent on old versions!

First of all, let me say a gigantic THANK YOU to as a whole for helping me take the plunge into linux. All the articles and howtos on here have been INCREDIBLE thus far in getting me going. So thanks.

Oh yeah, and before I start, I am on fedora core 4.

Now to the problem. I am at college and the wireless network in my apartment uses 802.1x PEAP authentication. I tried to install xsupplicant but it says that it can't locate the following packages:

Both of these are part of the openSSL library that I already have installed on my system. only problem is, I have a newer version so the file names look like this:

I have tried the following remedies, all to no avail.

Copying both files in the directories they are in and renaming the copies to get rid of the "f" - says it still cant find them

Creating a link to both files in the same directories and remaing the link without the "f" - says it still can't find them

Installing the 0.9.7 version of openSSL - "A newer version of 'openssl' is currently installed"

Can anyone help me either get the old version on my computer or tell xsupplicant to look for the new version in the dependency check? this is really maddening... it should work if I have a

newer version than required... shouldn't it?

Anyway. thanks a bunch for helping my n00b self.

alright, fixed it myself. all it took was compiling from source

Now I can't seem to get xsupplicant working properly. It seems to be drawing an IP and WEP key, but no webpages, no pinging, nothing.

anybody know much about xsupplicant?
