ssl installation
Hi guys

I want to install ssl for my system, and was wondering if I needed to download both of the tarballs from there site?

Thx guys

Yeah, you need the openssl-0.9.6b (?) and the openssl-shlibs (shared libraries). If you are doing those, you might as well download openssh also. It's small..

Ahh thx for the reply taz m8

but thats what i,m unsure about, because the only tarballs on the site are the normal one and the engine tarball, thats the one that was throwing me, is that the libs tar your talking about?

The only file you need is openssl-0.9.6c.tar.gz. The openssl-engine-0.9.6c.tar.gz is used to interface with external crypto hardware.

Only me

I,m trying to get hold of libxml.

The site says that I need the normal tar libxml2-2.4.12.tar.gz and devel tar to compile applications with libxml but get this.... they dont supply tars for the devel package only RPM,s... what am I supposed to do?

Thx guys

Sorry for all this quizing, but have you any idea what LDAP is?

Just a suggestion - if you ask a completely unrelated question you may want to start a new thread. There is a better chance of someone who knows the answer seeing it if the title is somewhat pertinent to the topic. That being said LDAP is the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol. It is an open-standard protocol for accessing information services. You may want to try the OpenLDAP site for more info.
