installing tls
I have to install tls to run amsn. How do i install it. The files I got (all in /root/tls1.4) were, pkgindex.tcl, and tls.tcl. I am using redhat 9. How do I install them or move them to where they will work with amsn.

The tls.tcl file... set it to executable (chmod +x tls.tcl) and run it... see if that works out.

How do i run it once ive set it to executable?

Do not forget the dot-forwardslash... that tells your console session to run the file tls.tcl from the current directory.

Hello, when I try to make the ./configure for the tls instalation I get


configure: error: /usr/local/openssl is not a valid directory
This resolves just by making this directory or I have to point configure to the real directory were I have openssl?? If the last option is the soluction, how do I do that?

You shouldn't need to install tls manually...when I ran aMsn (the installer version) for the first time it told me it needed it, asked me my architecture and then installed it for me.

It work, I do not knew that aMsn could preform the instalation by it-self

configure: error: /usr/local/openssl is not a valid directory
is there any way to fix this manually?

./configure --help
and see if there is a command you can pass it to tell it the location of openssl
