OpenSSL upgrade prevents KDE/konqueror from loading secure sites
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:53:25 EDT
Description of problem:
After installing RH9 on my Pentium-3 laptop, kde/konqueror could load https
sites (like https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/rh9-errata.html ) just fine. Then I
applied all upgrades including openssl-0.9.7a-5 (i686 rpm) and konqueror
failed to load these secure sites.
I went to konqueror settings -> crypto -> openssl and clicked on the test
button only to get the error message that openssl could not be loaded.
So I went ahead and installed openssl096b-0.9.6b-6 and then OpenSSL was
successfully loaded and konqueror could again load https sites.
1. "rpm -e --test openssl096b" shows no error messages
2. "rpm -q --whatrequires openssl096b" says->
no package requires openssl096b
On the other hand,
3. "rpm -q --whatrequires openssl" says:
Firstly, why did an upgrade of openssl stop konqueror from loading secure
Secondly, if no package needs openssl096b, how can it solve konqueror's secure
site loading problem ?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Tried only once.
Steps to Reproduce:
KDE seems to depend on the wrong openssl package
KDE should depend on the correct openssl package
It works for me. You should restart your KDE desktop after upgrade process.
IBTD: With kdebase-3.1-12, kdelibs-3.1-10 and openssl-0.9.7a-5, all https connection attempts
fail (without any network activitiy). Toss in openssl096b-0.9.6b-3, and everything's fine.
Someone please reopen this bug.
I think, i have found the bug. I can reproduce this problem on my machine now.
The Problem is that the konqueror tries to open libssl.so, which does not exist
on your machine after update process.
Could you please check if the symlink /libssl.so -> ../../lib/libssl.so.0.9.7a
exists on your machine? If not, please install it, and try again. I should work.
> If not, please install it, and try again. I should work.
Are you asking me to reinstall the openssl-0.9.7a-5 rpm ? As I have already said,
installing openssl096b-0.9.6b fixes the problem.
In any case, is this a packaging bug then ?
it's a bug in kdelibs. i have fix it in kdelibs-3.1.2-2 or newer.

Is KDE 3.1.2 out yet ? In any case, where can I get these new rpms ?
kde 3.1.2 will probably be available this weekend on ftp.kde.org.
