Description David Mansfield 2001-08-29 03:08:18 UTC
Description of Problem:
without the openssl-devel package (and the symlink, /usr/lib/libssl.so 
which points to /lib/libssl.so.0.9.6b), konqueror will fail to access any 
ssl enabled web site, instead popping up a dialog 'cant connect to host' 
or something like that.  you can see it by going into konqueror settings, 
go to crypto section, go to openssl tab and click 'test' button.  then 
install/remove openssl-devel package and try again.

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-08-29 09:54:50 UTC
Konqueror dlopen()s libssl.so - please move that file to the openssl base 
package, that's a much simpler fix than patching Konqueror to glob() 
/usr/lib/*ssl* and dlopen() the best match.

Assigning to openssl

Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2001-08-29 22:30:03 UTC
Structure sizes change between every release of OpenSSL.  Binary
compatibility is not guaranteed.  Using dlopen() to demand-load
libssl and get the addresses of functions it provides is all but
guaranteed to break applications down the road, and moving the
symlink from openssl-devel to openssl won't help then.  Fix kssl.

Punting back to kdelibs.
