Subject Re: error installing flood
Date Mon, 02 May 2005 16:20:27 GMT
Redhat or Fedora Linux distribution by some chance?  Or one of the other
canned distributions?  Someone here will better be able to tell you where
flood is looking for OpenSSL headers, but yours are in some other place
than the ones flood config is looking.  You might make a symlink from where
they are to where they ought to be, but I prefer a fresh install of OpenSSL
from source.

I used the source package and compiled OpenSSL first, then configured and
installed flood, when I used it some long time back.  That puts the newest
(also the most secure) version in the directories where they are expected
to be, rather than off in some other whimsical location.

(I haven't been involved in using flood in almost a year now, time to think
about dropping this list; but since it's such a low-volume list, maybe I'll
just let it stand....)

Later you will have to fight the package management system over
upgrading/downgrading the OpenSSL stuff it installed before you built it
from scratch, but that's another problem entirely.  Dependencies are also a
nightmare when you get to replacing rpm's and such with source-built
packages.  Broke a system completely once doing this, mucking about with C
libraries and such.....Can you say "reinstall the operating system?"  Sure,
I knew you could.
