libcrypto.so.2 & libssl.so.2 library file required....

Hi Folks,

I'm installing Nessus system scanner on Red Hat 7.1 Linux, but while doing so i get errors saying dependencies failed as for the following two files are not found.

libcrypto.so.2
libssl.so.2

Can you all tell me where can i find these files and install it. After searching thruout the net, i did not find one. Some did mention of installing OpenSSL rpms which i did but no result.

Suggestion Welcomed.

Cheers & Regards,
Dayanand Naik.

Hi Marcin,

I have installed OpenSSL the same product the link what you have specified but still it does not install the libcrypto.so.2 file.

I searched the entire disk and found libcrypto.so and libcrypto.so.1

Any other site....

Cheers & Regards

You must have installed an older version of OpenSSL... I've just downloaded openssl-0.9.6b-2.i586.rpm and it contains libcrypto.so.2 and libssl.so.2 in it. libcrypto.so.1 is not even referenced in the package.

hi,

if you have /usr/lib/libssl.so.0.9.6 on your system just create a symbolic link to it (as root):

ln -s /usr/lib/libssl.so.0.9.6 /usr/lib/libssl.so.2

do the same for libcrypto if required:

ln -s /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.6 /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.2

worked fine for me, nessus runs.
