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.

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.

I did not try the ruby package.

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
../../ruby extconf.rb
--with-openssl-include=/where/you/installed/openssl/include
--with-openssl-lib=/where/you/installed/openssl
LD_RUN_PATH=/where/you/installed/openssl/lib make
make install

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

What does this error message on my blog mean?
I've posted my blog on a site (houseblogs.net). If you go to the blog
address directly, it comes up fine. But if you click on it from
houseblogs.net you get this message:
The requested URL /community/extensions/Blogs/greybox/0 was not found on
this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use
an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

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 :(

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...

Works on Ubuntu Karmic and better, but this is 8.04 (Hardy), you need
to compile ruby 1.9.1 from source on these older versions of Ubuntu

Hi.
Many thanks to all.
I've solved to recompile src ruby1.9.1 after
installation of libssl-dev, openssl and libssl0.9.8

I've compiled with that params:
--with-openssl-dir, --with-readline-dir, --with-zlib-dir

During compilation I receveid a warning : params unrecognized,
but now webrick start.

Chad: thank you for your help. I was create a rails project tickets.

I got this error " no such file to load - openssl" when I load my rails
page:
http://localhost:3000/tickets

Your solution solved my problem.

If you are using rvm (ruby version manager) you need to do nexts steps:

rvm pkg install openssl
rvm remove 1.9.2
rvm install 1.9.2 --with-openssl-dir=$HOME/.rvm/usr

When building from source I do as much as possible as an ordinary user -
you only need to be root to do the install, so I use sudo to do that
part as root:

ruby extconf.rb
make
sudo make install

While installing rails 4.0.0 on top of ruby 2.0.0 I had the problem
discussed in this thread.  The above fix worked but then I got a similar
error because zlib was missing.  As well as the openssl package, there's
a zlib package in the ext directory which you build in the same way:

cd ../zlib
ruby extconf.rb
make
sudo make install
