rh8 update from 3.0.5 to samba 3.0.11

have a samba 3.0.5 running on a redhat 8 (kernel 2.4.20) - i am now wanting to update to the 3.0.11 as we sometimes have connections lost with osx. thought an update would be the best thing to do.

problem 1: i cannot find a samba package for rh8
problem 2: when trying to install the package for rh9 i get the following error message:

error: Failed dependencies: is needed by samba-3.0.11-1 is needed by samba-3.0.11-1

trying to find an openssl package greater than 0.9.6b-35.8 (which is installed) for rh8 is quite an act.

thanks for your help.

when you configure samba
./configure -help
and it will automaticly tell you some parameters.
like : ./configure --with-openssl=/folder/to/your/openssl etc..

thanks for the quick reply.
as a newbie a am using webmin to install my rpms. when i try typing this into the console it cannot find the command.

but what you are trying to tell me is to change the folder to a new version of openssl?

sorry I made a mistake

please do ./configure --help

notice it is two - here

and I misunderstanding your problem last post. if you have an openssl version>require already install on your linux then do the above.
if not install the latest version.
and do make pkg-config notice this change.
