openssl updated and broke ABI ... do the symlink thing to work around it (see f-d-l).
Comment 2 seth vidal 2009-01-16 11:18:43 EST
reassigning to openssl and reopening.
Comment 3 Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2009-01-16 11:45:55 EST
The symbolic link for libcrypto.so.7 was missing

Simple ln -s /lib64/libcrypto.so.8 /lib64/libcrypto.so.7 Fixed this for me

There where other things that broke as well for like cups sendmail  and more

Did not keep track of it all fixed after creating the symbolic link..
