Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 155786
curl has dependency on location of openssl files
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:04 EST
Since the creation of /etc/pki and therefore removal of /usr/share/ssl, curl has
broken and no longer works without extra flags.
This is because it is looking in /usr/share/ssl etc
When curl is invoked:
curl: (60) error setting certificate verify locations:
More details here: http://curl.haxx.se/docs/sslcerts.html
curl performs SSL certificate verification by default, using a "bundle"
of Certificate Authority (CA) public keys (CA certs). The default
bundle is named curl-ca-bundle.crt; you can specify an alternate file
using the --cacert option.
If this HTTPS server uses a certificate signed by a CA represented in
the bundle, the certificate verification probably failed due to a
problem with the certificate (it might be expired, or the name might
not match the domain name in the URL).
If you'd like to turn off curl's verification of the certificate, use
the -k (or --insecure) option.
Thank you for your notice.
This problem is fixed in curl-7.13.1-2. (Thanks Joe Orton.)
