Description Dave Blackburn 2006-11-18 20:29:11 EST
Description of problem:
scp: error while loading shared libraries: libcrypto.so.2: cannot open shared
object file: No such file or directory

This seems to be an old lib -- not on my FC5 system updated with yum.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
as root
scp ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub root@$h:~/.ssh/authorized_keys2
where $h is another host on same subnet

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
scp: error while loading shared libraries: libcrypto.so.2: cannot open shared
object file: No such file or directory

Expected results:
scp to load the current libcrypto.so.6 or libcrypto.so.0.9.8a
or, if necessary, make libcrypto.so.2 available in repos with a dep from
openssh-clients-4.3p2-4.10 (and other if appropriate).

Additional info:
I installed openssh*-4.3p2-4.1 in place of *4.10
scp now runs OK.

My system:
Linux <host> 2.6.17-1.2187_FC5 #1 Mon Sep 11 01:17:06 EDT 2006 i686 i686 i386

both from: openssl-0.9.8a-5.4

Related suggestion:
The normal repositories didn't have openssh*-4.3p2-4.1 
I had to find another repos by web search before I
could use yum to downgrade to openssh*-4.3p2-4.1 
Perhaps keeping older updates in the update repos would be worthwhile unless
it's more hassle than it's worth.

There must be something seriously broken on your system. I have verified that
the scp in openssh-clients-4.3p2-4.10 requests libcrypto.so.6 and not

Isn't it possible that you somehow accidentaly overwritten scp with a different
libcrypto.so.2 is from openssl-0.9.6b which is not shipped in Fedora for a long
