Description of problem:
On Fedora 9, x86_64, an updated rdesktop cannot be downloaded because of an
unresolved dependency to libcrypto.
I tried removing the original package with:
rpm -e kdenetwork rdesktop and tried installing again; however, it's still failing:
[root@home init.d]# yum install rdesktop
Loaded plugins: priorities, refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process

Error: Missing Dependency: libcrypto.so.6()(64bit) is needed by package
Every time Fedora 9 has tried to update and today trying to install the latest
from the repos... for the last couple days.
rdesktop fails to install or update with unresolved dependency.
rdesktop should be able to update or install correctly using same repos as
I have fedora, fedora-updates and livna repos enabled.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
