Openssl library?


#1

Hi,

Where I work we have an Ubuntu server. I installed Ruby by compiling the
1.8.4 sources. According to the standard library documentation at
http://www.ruby-doc.org/stdlib/, the openssl library should be included
in the standard distribution – I need this in order to run SwitchTower.
However, it doesn’t appear to be there. I cannot require it, and
checking in /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8 I cannot see anything to do with
openssl. Anyone have any ideas? Am I supposed to do something else?

Cheers

I don’t know why it doesn’t build automatically, but whenever I build
ruby from source, I do the following:

cd ext/openssl
make install

in order to build the ruby openssl extension.

(On debian, I also recall having needed to build the OpenSSL library
[not the ruby extension, but the system library] from a source package,
in order to get the needed header files.)

Hope this helps,

Bill

Probably, you can just apt-get install libssl-dev.

Ahh, indeed, there it is, thanks:
http://packages.debian.org/stable/libdevel/libssl-dev

I think I looked for openssl-dev and hadn’t found it.

Thx,

Bill

Can’t quite reproduce this. Uninstalling everything ruby-related and
installing from 1.8.4 source worked perfectly as far as openssl is
concerned.
You apparently need to have libssl-dev installed for the build scripts
to
make it. (I apparently broke the readline support in the process…)

Thanks for the info.
