libraries conflict

(Mdk 9.1)
Im trying to get gotmail running, but it needs curl-ssl.
I tried installing curl-ssl-7.10.4-1.i386.rpm (latest version available) but it wont install cuz 2 libraries are missing : and
These libraries are part of openssl096b package, but i have already a newer version (openssl-0.9.7a) installed with and
So should i still install curl-ssl-7.10.4-1 with the --nodeps flag? What other option do i have?
Thanks for your help (i found no information about this problem).

I have the same problems with pyOPenSSl, it needs the and, but I cant' update openssl, cause there are some packages that needs the libcrypto.s0.4 and How can I get the.4 files and keep the .2 files.. There are quite a number of packages that needs the .2 files, so i am not really looking forward in updating them all..

Any help?

If you look closely at /usr/lib you can see that some lib<whatever>.so.2 files are just symlinks to some other version of the library.

In the case of, I find that the openssl096b package, when examined with Midnight Commander, does not contain, but rather Perhaps a symlink would be created on install. I already have and

The existence of a lib<whatever>.so.<number> file is sometimes ignored by urpmi. It complains that it needs this file, which you already have. RPM is one of those nice ideas that doesn't always work. The solution sometimes is to get the tarball (tar.gz) version of what you are trying to install.
