Downgrading openssl on Centos


I recently just installed centos, but it appears that when i installed it v 0.9.8e was installed consequently, all the lib's etc. are /lib/ instead of an ordinary /lib/ etc. and this is causing some problems for me, as programs are looking for /lib/, and even if i symlink/copy/move /lib/ to /lib/ there are still some errors occurring.

I had been reading that supposedly yum is meant to have a "yum downgrade" option, however it doesnt appeart o be recognised when i run it on my centos server.

Any assistance wouldbe greatly appreciated.

I will look into downgrading OpenSSL on CentOS, but in the meantime, have you read the yum manpage?
$ man yum

I found this for you on ServerFault. Basically, here is the command you are looking for:
# yum --allow-downgrade install desired_openssl_package

Unfortunately this did not work for me:

Command line error: no such option: --allow-downgrade
