Thread: Install problems with a Slackware 10.2 version of Linux

  1. Install problems with a Slackware 10.2 version of Linux

    I am having trouble installing the current openssl on an older
    slackware 10.2 linux distribution. As indicated below it came
    with a /lib/libcrypt-2.3.5.so dated 2005-09-10
    I downloaded and tried to install openssl-0.9.8i.tar.gz
    As indicated by the directory listings below only part of it seems
    to build and install, although I see no error messages anywhere.

    I've looked at the other postings, and no one seems to be having
    any issues like this. Am I doing something really stupid?

    Below are some directory listings of what's installed after I
    running ./config, make, and INSTALL

    The instructions said I should replace the /usr/include/openssl/*.h with
    the new ones. Actually I think it said delete them, but they didn't
    get installed so I copied them in manually.

    If you look at the stuff below, what I have is the originally distributed
    2005 and 2006 files still in place for libcrypt*
    Conversely the /usr/local/ssl directory which didn't exist before
    was created and populated, but libcrypto.so.0.9.8 doesn't seem to
    exist althought there is a link to it!

    My man pages for openssl and libcrypto after the install do not reflect
    the new version.

    What is going on?

    ls -l /lib/libcry*
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 25168 2005-09-10 18:05 /lib/libcrypt-2.3.5.so*

    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2008-10-05 16:25 engines/
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2229400 2008-10-05 16:25 libcrypto.a
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 2008-10-05 16:25 libcrypto.so ->

    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 2008-10-05 16:25 libssl.so ->

    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2008-10-05 13:45 pkgconfig/


    similarly in my build directory I have the link to libcrypto.so.0.9.8 but
    the file itself doesn't
    seem to exist.
    ls -l /usr/src/openssl libcry*
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2229400 2008-10-05 15:55
    /usr/src/openssl-0.9.8i/libcrypto.a
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 250 2008-10-05 16:00
    /usr/src/openssl-0.9.8i/libcrypto.pc
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 2008-10-05 16:23
    /usr/src/openssl-0.9.8i/libcrypto.so -> libcrypto.so.0.9.8
    total 3840

    Have you looked at the slackbuild script for the openssl package? Both
    the 10.2 and current versions apply some patches to the openssl source,
    one of which appears to do something with naming of the .so files.

    I'd download the slackware-current sources for the openssl package (it
    on 0.9.7h, so there'll be some change you need to make for 0.9.7i) and
    work from that.

    What version of the system C library are you running?
    It is also an executable, just execute it, it will tell you.
    You should be able to find it in /lib
    Something like:

    wolf466:~# /lib/libc-2.7.so

  4. Re: Install problems with a Slackware 10.2 version of Linux

    Mike:
    If its inappropriate to reply directly, I apologize!
    But I couldn't resist inquiring if you really think some things
    have changed since 2005? Just because the entire banking system
    has failed is no reason to think linux would change :-)

    Truthfully that kernel and distribution has done everything I need
    to date. I'm mainly curious why it didn't install. If its a library
    problem I will post to the newsgroup. I haven't checked yet.
    But if that were the case I would expect errors during the build.
    That's what confuses me, it says it builds and installs cleanly....
    I believe it came with a set of tests that all ran successfully also.
    Perplexing.

    Two things that I had in mind when I wrote that. . .
    Most distributions where introducing libraries with TLS (Thread Local Storage)
    and still carrying compatibility layers to support both thread libraries.

    I never followed Slackware, so I don't know where they stood in these
    two library transitions - -
    But I have seen problems with "clean compile and link" VS "run time problems"
    during that period.

    Just self testing it runs it against what it was built with (which had better work)
    But it is a library - that does not mean what links to it will not have funky behavior.

    So I was hoping to eliminate all of those possibilities by learning where
    your 2005 library stood in the past mix. You might have one of those
    multiple compatibility library installs in Slackware of 2005.
