Openssl error - ubuntu

Help!

Why do I continually get the following error?


irb(main):001:0> require ‘openssl’
LoadError: no such file to load – openssl
from (irb):1:in `require’
from (irb):1

I’ve tried everything in every post about this. I’ve blown away my
ruby install like 6 times. How do I get ruby to recognize openssl?

I’ve installed:

ubuntu
ruby 1.8.5
libopenssl-ruby
libzlib-ruby
libyaml-ruby
libdrb-ruby
liberb-ruby
zlib1g-dev

Any suggestions?

Thank you,
Chad

do you have ‘openssl’ installed? try to install, libssl0.9.8 or highet
and libssl-dev.

Absolutely… I’m not a linux expert though, but I have a feeling
they’re installing somewhere that ruby can’t see them. What can I do
to ensure apt-get is behaving properly?

See below:

[/root] # apt-get install openssl
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
openssl is already the newest version.

[/root] # apt-get install libssl-dev
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
libssl-dev is already the newest version.

Thank you,
Chad

I finally figured it out.

I cleaned out all the current openssl files, then took the ruby 1.8.5
source, went into the ruby-1.8.5/ext/openssl directory and created the
openssl make file:

ruby extconf.rb
make
make install

and that fiiiiinally but the libraries where they should go.

Thanks for sharing, I have tried about 1 week to get it going, without
success!!!

I’ve followed this, and I’m still stuck.

I’ve done the following:
sudo apt-get install openssl
sudo apt-get install libssl-dev
sudo apt-get install libssl0.9.8

gone into /ext/openssl/ and run
ruby extconf.rb
cd …/…
make
make install

At least now all those commands work without failing to find openssl.
Still, though, running irb and calling “require ‘openssl’” yeilds the
very frustrating “no such file to load – libssl”

What else am I forgetting to check?

I solved my own problem: the make and make install should be run from
the ext/openssl/ directory (and it’s fine if there’s “nothing to do for
make”).

This information helped me when I was struggling with this problem
today.
I registed into this forum , immediately, only to thank you.

Thanks a lot pal, it worked perfectly for me too. I had the same openssl
problem on a new ubuntu server box. Thanks for the tip.

So much for distribution’s package managers making your life easier,

If I rememer right, ‘require “openssl”’ raised an error when I compiled
from source of ruby-1.8.6 or ruby-1.8.7 after Ubuntu-8.04 fresh install.

I did not try the ruby package.

I don’t think anybody reported a bug about that to Ubuntu or Debian. And
Ubuntu just imports the Ruby packages from Debian.

Also, it works perfectly fine here. On a clean Debian install:
apt-get install ruby libopenssl-ruby ; ruby -e ‘require “openssl”’
doesn’t raise any error.

If you can still reproduce this, I would be interested in the outputs of
“dpkg -l | grep ruby” and “dpkg -L libopenssl-ruby1.8” on your system.

This worked for me:

  1. Compile SSL from scratch

  2. Make note of the install location, shown as
    /where/you/installed/openssl below

  3. Use the earlier instruction (above) to manually create the extension:

cd ext/openssl

–with-openssl-include=/where/you/installed/openssl/include
–with-openssl-lib=/where/you/installed/openssl

I’m not sure the LD_RUN_PATH is needed, but I’ve had problems with Ruby
before so included it to be safe.

I’ve posted my blog on a site (houseblogs.net). If you go to the blog

houseblogs.net you get this message:

If you’d rather not build form source, just do this (it worked for me on
Intrepid):

sudo apt-get install libopenssl-ruby

and then try again.

I to all.

I’m new for the forum,
and not many able with linux e ruby,
but I’m on IT from many years.

I’ve read your discussion (and many other) …
I have the same problem …
“no such file to load – openssl”
with ruby /script/server

I’ve installed ruby-1.9.1-p376 (without openssl) on a
vmware ubuntu 8.04 virtual machine.

For what I’ve understand, our suggests works fine
on ruby 1.8 / 1.9,
but for 1.9.1 I’ve not found anything.

Installing openssl, libssl-dev or libopenssl-ruby1.9
on my filesystem was created …/ruby/1.9.0,
but my ruby are on /ruby/1.9.1 !!

How I can download ruby1.9.1 with /ext subdir …
or how I can integrate with openssl my ruby1.9.1.

Sorry for my english …
and for my stupid question :frowning:

I hope my question are understandable.

This may not address your concerns at all, but something we found out
last year
is that Debian / Ubuntu Server adopt GNUTLS for some facilities as
opposed to
OpenSSL, which has some implications for some things like behaviors with
adoptions of certificates that are self-signed, or not signed by
canonical
sources. OpenLDAP was the one we were seeing this on. It worked with
internal
certs on CentOS, but not on Ubuntu Server, which uses GNUTLS instead of
OpenSSL
for this.

Recompile and reinstall ruby 1.9.1 with the libssl-dev package
installed, and you might want to synchronize your system time with
‘sudo ntpdate ntp.ubuntu.com’ before compiling… I’ve had it refuse
to compile the openssl extension due to a skewed clock before.

Good luck…

Install libopenssl-ruby1.9.1.
