Exclamation problem installing openssl packages


Hi. I need help installing the latest openssl packages.

Really my eventual goal is to upgrade php and other related packages. I'm getting messages that they need libraries called 'libcrypto.so.4' and 'libssl.so.4'. To that end, I'm attempting to upgrade openssl and getting the following seemingly contradictory error (the rpm file is in the current downloads directory):

[root@sparky downloads]# rpm -q openssl-0.9.6b-29.i386.rpm
package openssl-0.9.6b-29.i386.rpm is not installed
[root@sparky downloads]# rpm -i openssl-0.9.6b-29.i386.rpm
package openssl-0.9.6b-29 is already installed
file /lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.6b from install of openssl-0.9.6b-29 conflicts with file from package openssl096b-0.9.6b-3
file /lib/libssl.so.0.9.6b from install of openssl-0.9.6b-29 conflicts with file from package openssl096b-0.9.6b-3
file /lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.6b from install of openssl-0.9.6b-29 conflicts with file from package openssl-0.9.6b-29
file /lib/libssl.so.0.9.6b from install of openssl-0.9.6b-29 conflicts with file from package openssl-0.9.6b-29
file /usr/bin/openssl from install of openssl-0.9.6b-29 conflicts with file from package openssl-0.9.6b-29
file /usr/share/man/man1/asn1parse.1ssl.gz from install of openssl-0.9.6b-29 conflicts with file from package openssl-0.9.6b-29
file /usr/share/man/man1/ca.1ssl.gz from install of openssl-0.9.6b-29 conflicts with file from package openssl-0.9.6b-29

..plus lots of other man page entries

Any help is greatly appreciated.

That's because you're querying for the wrong package. As far as rpm is concerned, there is no such package as "openssl-0.9.6b-29.i386.rpm."
If you search for just "openssl" (rpm -q openssl), it will show you that it is indeed installed.

Couple things you could try,... making a link to the existing files as such:

cd /lib
ln -s libcrypto.so.0.9.6b libcrypto.so.4
ln -s libssl.so.0.9.6b libssl.so.4

... or upgrading to an even newer openssl package:

rpm -Uvh ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/rawhide/1.0/...7a-17.i386.rpm

At least one of these will solve this problem for you.

Question Spoke too soon...

It seemed to work for a while, but after I installed the PHP packages I was intending to install, I attempted to restart apache and got the following error messages, which lead me to believe something didn't work with the SSL upgrade.

[root@sparky downloads]# rpm -i php-4.2.2-17.i386.rpm
[root@sparky downloads]# cd /etc/rc.d/init.d
[root@sparky init.d]# ./httpd restart
Stopping httpd: [ OK ]
Starting httpd: Syntax error on line 6 of /etc/httpd/conf.d/php.conf:
Cannot load /etc/httpd/modules/libphp4.so into server: /lib/libssl.so.4: undefin
ed symbol: krb5_cc_get_principal
[FAILED]
[root@sparky init.d]#

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Angry Hmmm.... that should've worked

Well, unfortunately, all I can say is that it should've worked. What that error message is saying is that /lib/libssl.so.4 doesn't fulfill all the requirements it claims. By any chance, is that symbolic link still pointing to the old library file?

ls -lF /lib/libssl.so.4

If it is, point it to the new one:

cd /lib
ln -s libssl.so.0.9.7a libssl.so.4
ln -s libcrypto.so.0.9.7a libcrypto.so.4
