Description Matthew Galgoci 2002-03-30 15:51:20 EST
Description of Problem:

openssl is compiled with i686 specific instructions and won't run on any of
my older hardware (various i586 chips). An illegal instruction exception is 

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

Tried current beta and current rawhide.

How Reproducible:

Try and run openssl on a non 686 machine and it should happen every

Additional Information:

I recompiled openssl with the following flags and it works now:

sslflags="no-asm 386"

Did you install the i386 or i686 package?
Comment 2 Matthew Galgoci 2002-04-01 16:38:14 EST

I didn't realize that openssl had been broken out into i386 and i686 packages.

The machine was installed on an i686 and I rolled back the kernel and libc by 
hand before dropping the drive into the i586 machine.

I AssuMed there was only one openssl package.

Let me double check on this tonight before closing this bug as NOTABUG (or 
rather PEBKAC)
