Comment 1 Joe Orton 2002-11-28 14:57:47 UTC
I can't reproduce this.  What does "modified des.h file in OpenSSL to install
SSLeay" mean?  You have recompiled the RPMs?

Comment 2 Jay Hodges 2002-11-29 15:10:17 UTC
During the complie of SSLeay from source, there is an error and one line in 
des.h needs to be commented out for SSLeay to install properly.  No RPM's were 

/usr/include/openssl/des.h Line 193
