Ubuntu 6.06.1 VMware Stunnel Installation Issues


I am running Ubuntu 6.06.1 in VMware player on a WinXP Pro box and am trying to configure stunnel and hitting a wall. I downloaded the package (stunnel-4.26) from stunnel.org and when I try to run sudo ./configure from the terminal it fails with the following terminal and config.log output.

Term:
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See 'config.log' for more details.

Config.log:
Log attached as config.log.txt.

One thing I think could be causing the problem is I am running config from my Desktop, could this be causing the issue?

See if installing libc6-devel helps. BTW, isn't there a package for stunnel?..

First off thanks for the reply, a little dis-heartening to see over 90 views and not one reply. I installed libc6-dev through the package manager and was able to get a little further but now it is failing out saying it can't fine the SSL libraries. I used the suggested command switch of --with-ssl=/etc/ssl, --with-ssl=/usr/lib/ssl and --with-ssl=/usr/bin/openssl and it keeps failing at the same point. I tried locating any stunnel packages and didn't see any. Any other ideas?

SSL libs might be in libcurl3-openssl-dev. Wrt packages, see if you can edit your /etc/apt/sources.list and uncomment the "universe" lines, then 'aptitude search stunnel' and then (if available) 'apt-get install stunnel', 'apt-get install stunnel3' or 'apt-get install stunnel4'.

No go on all fronts. Couldn't locate a libcurl3-openssl directory and apt isn't listing stunnel at all even with the universe lines uncommented. Going to try a few more things once I get home, maybe see if I can't recreate the issue on another system and go from there. Thanks for the help so far.

libcurl3-openssl isn't a dir but a package. If nothing works, this distro release being that old, I'd just get the upstream tarballs of stunnel and deps, build from that and keep it in /usr/local. In the end upgrading to a current distro release might be an idea.

Didn't realize I was so out of date, grabbing an image of 8.10 now and will work with it instead. Took me a while to find a non torrent download though, active filtering is making my life heel which is partly why I want to get stunnel up and running so that I can bounce some traffic through my home server. Thanks for the input and help so far.

Well 8.10 is crap, two different builds hard locked. Trying 8.04.2 instead, only 6 more hours until the dl is complete!

Well looks like I will be giving up on Ubuntu since the only version I can get to function on my box without hard locking it is 6.06.1. Thanks for the help but this just isn't working, going to try and get the Slackware build functioning through virtual NAT instead.

Shame. Any errors on or preceding deadlock?

Nothing. It boots the image and runs all the pre-processes fine but once I try and go through the GUI login is when it locks, could be the desktop manager crashing but it has happened with both Gnome and KDE environments. I have Slackware running stable for now so will keep it is my virtual build for the time being. It is a shame because I like Ubuntu and will probably get a real build running on one of my home boxes.

Well at least it shows some consistency ;-p If you still have it around have a look at /var/log/Xorg*.log. More spcifically, egrepping the log for "(EE|WW)" should get you the warnings and errors, if any.

I already scrubbed all of the builds so kind of a no-go on checking the logs. I'll get a build going on one of my older home servers and see how it works out, probably better than my previous tries. I'll keep you posted and might have a few more questions about some custom config work I will be trying to setup. Thanks again.

NP. If it's a new topic just remember to create a new thread and not tack it onto this thread, else it may get lost too soon, OK?
