Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 49382
Both openssl-0.9.5a and openssl095a-0.9.5a can be installed simultaneously, which is confusing.

Description of problem:
On a system where openssl-0.9.5a-1 already existed, I installed
openssl095a-0.9.5a-7 from beta 1. Rpm did not complain about this, and
both packages live side by side.
22:16 uebn> rpm -q --whatprovides libcrypto.so.0
In particular the situation in /usr/lib is a bit confusing:
22:26 uebn> ls -l /usr/lib/libcrypto*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Sep 9 2000
/usr/lib/libcrypto.so -> libcrypto.so.0.9.5
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 Jul 18 22:10
/usr/lib/libcrypto.so.0 -> libcrypto.so.0.9.5a
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 908558 Apr 1 2000
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 887109 Jun 25 08:01
I'm not sure if this actually causes any problems when executing programs.
But I see no point in allowing this, so I would suggest openssl095a to
conflict (in the RPM sense) with openssl < 0.9.6.
Steps to Reproduce:
Take a system where openssl-0.9.5a is installed, and install
This defect considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax.
The ldconfig symlink is normal, and I don't think we've shipped libssl.so.0.9.5
in any of our openssl packages, but adding the conflicts is a good idea --
they'll be in openssl095a-0.9.5a-11 and openssl096-0.9.6-6. Thanks!
