Issue with SVN and the latest Openssl in 14.0 x64


Hello,

I'm having a strange issue accessing my works SVN repository since the latest update to Openssl. The repo is at an https:// address. I get the following error (hostname removed for obvious reasons)
Code:
svn: E175002: Unable to connect to a repository at URL 'https://....'
svn: E175002: OPTIONS of 'https://.....': Could not parse response status line (https://....)
If I revert the openssl upgrade it works correctly.

This can be replicated on the following address (which I assume is correctly set up):
Code:
svn co https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/excalibur/trunk/ excalibur-trunk
With the latest openssl I can't perform this action, with the original openssl I can.

I can access the repo using windows in a virtual machine on the same computer so I don't believe it is network related or a problem with my server.

Rebuilding SVN with the updated openssl doesn't seem to change any behavior.

Any ideas?

If your computer has a CPU with AES-NI support, your trouble with SVN and https-repos is very likely caused by a bug in OpenSSL 1.0.1d, see http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ni-4175449585/

FYI, it seems I am running the latest updates on a AES-NI cpu (i5)
Code:
$ zgrep AES_NI /proc/config.gz 
CONFIG_CRYPTO_AES_NI_INTEL=y
and I can checkout that svn address...

Interesting. I was asking in ##slackware last night and out of the two people helping me, one person could check the address out and one had the same error as me, so I don't think I'm crazy just yet.


I do indeed have that CPU feature..


Code:
$ zgrep AES_NI /proc/config.gz 
CONFIG_CRYPTO_AES_NI_INTEL=y

@Cesare,
Thank you! I applied the patch linked in your thread and rebuilt openssl-1.0.1d. SVN is working again and I can access my work repo (and that test repo linked in the OP).
