openssl

Ok, the question is:

when I try to make a

ruby script/server

RoR says:

....

that cannot load openssl (Runtime error)

....

Then I have successfully installed openssl (0.9.8) on a RedHat (i686)
but when I try to go in ruby/ext/openssl and make a

ruby extconf.rb
make
make install

He say things that I don't understand...

Any suggestion?
thanks in advance, really

Well you could try pasting the error messages here (at a guess you may
not have the development headers for openssl (if you installed openssl
via you distro's package management system there may be a separate
openssl-dev package or something like that))

this solve yours problems:

install openssl:

./config --prefix=/usr/local --openssldir=/usr/local/ssl
make
make test
make install (as root)
./config shared --prefix=/usr/local --openssldir=/usr/local/ssl
make clean
make
make install (as root)
cd /usr/local/ssl/lib
cp * /usr/lib

To avoid getting the following error later when you compile OpenSSH:

configure: error: Your OpenSSL headers do

not match your library

copy all the SSL include files everywhere:

cd /home/tjnelson/openssl/openssl-*
cd include/openssl
cp * /usr/include
cp * /usr/local/ssl/include
cp * /usr/local/ssl/include/openssl

and then add /usr/local/ssl/lib to /etc/ld.so.conf and type

ldconfig

Then i returned to ruby-*/ext/openssl
and ran:

ruby extconf.rb
make clean
make
make install
