OpenSSL Problems

I recently uninstalled Slackware's default OpenSSL package, to compile my own from the OpenSSL source. It compiled and installed ok, but programs that require OpenSSL's libraries are broken. How do I direct them to the new OpenSSL(/usr/local/ssl)?

In fact, this has been a problem I've had with many programs I've installed in the past, and I would like to learn how to fix these dependency problems in Slackware.

I haven't tinkered with it for a while, but you might have some success if you add the new location (/usr/local/ssl) to /etc/ and run ldconfig.

If that doesn't work, you can always try re-compiling the apps and use a command line switch to tell them where the new libs are. Obviously, that's not the preferred way...


dependencies, install, packages
