wget error

Hi...we've installed wget on our system, (11.31, rx7640.)

When we run /usr/local/bin/wget, we get:

/usr/lib/hpux32/dld.so: Unable to find library '/usr/local/lib/hpux32/libssl.so'

Killed

Any ideas where I should start?

Re: wget error

Do you have libssl.so anywhere else?
Did you download the runtime dependencies:

Re: wget error

If you're using the package from The Porting and Archive Centre, make sure you have installed all the packages listed as "run-time dependencies".

It looks like you're missing at least OpenSSL.

Note: the OpenSSL from HP-UX Internet Express and the OpenSSL from the Porting Archive don't install to the same locations. You may be able to circumvent this with a symbolic link or two, if you dislike installing two versions of OpenSSL.

And there's only one way to do that, so we
all know exactly where you got the kit, and
what you did with it, right?

One advantage of building things like this
from a source kit is that that way you
normally have exactly the same run-time
environment as the fellow who built the
thing.

Re: wget error

Hi Ron:

As already noted, you need to install all dependencies too.

The HP-UX Porting Centre has a tool to assist this. Install:

http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/Sysadmin/depothelper-2.00/

...and then install what you want.

Regards!

Re: wget error

Hi guys!! OpenSSL is installed and working. I still get the error. The tool to find dependencies is great, however, the systems in question are currently not connected to the interner. Kind of a pre-development setup we're doing for an eBusiness Suite.

Is there anything else I can provide to help resolve this issue?

Regards,

There may be, but my psychic powers are too
weak to tell me what you did to get to this
error, so it's hard to make any more specific
suggestions.

You may think that that conveys some useful
information, but it doesn't.

Re: wget error

I apologoze for the apparent vagueness of my issue.

But, duh, we need the www to run wget anyway. This will be put on the back burner for now, until we are prepared to move forward in a production environment.

Thank you for all of your help!

Re: wget error

Let me clarify: there exists at least two versions of OpenSSL for HP-UX. One is provided by HP at software.hp.com, the other is provided by the Porting Archive.

The stuff at the Porting Archive tends to be linked against Porting Archive's version of OpenSSL.

Seeing the output of "swlist |grep -i -e wget -e openssl" would have made it much easier to guess what might be the problem.

Not really, depending on what you intended to
do with it, which, of course, also remains a
mystery.

Note that wget requires the SSL stuff only to
handle schemes which use encryption, like
"https://". If all you need is simple stuff
like "ftp://" and "http://", then you can
probably get along using a wget which is
built without SSL.

It was real vagueness, not merely apparent
vagueness.

Re: wget error

Thank you all. I have been properly brow beaten. In the future I will collect all of the answers for you. I was given vague info to begin with, and there you have it.

I appologize.
