Re: OpenSSL - dynamically linked binaries?

Sorry for choosing bad mailing list, I just thought that this issue would
be more appropriate in this list, because it concerns many other
software, than just openssl.

Secondly, this concerns more systems, one of them is LFS (Linux From
Scratch http://www.linuxfromscratch.org as of 20031212), my Slackware
Linux and several other machines. I'm trying to update it manually, and
because that `d' is just patchlevel, it should be binary compatible.
Therefore no other recompilation should be necessary. The question is,
why it doesn't behave as expected ...

I was just asking, what is the general practice, what do people here
recompile when new openssl version is issued etc.

Thanks for your time,
Honza Vlach

First of all this is a question for the openssl mailing list. (see
http://www.openssl.org/support/) Second, I'd be 99% certain that you are
running Red Hat and have missed the instructions on building in the openssl
FAQ http://www.openssl.org/support/faq.html#BUILD8. If I am correct, then
it's best to use the Red Hat supplied patches. However, if you are using an
unsupported Red Hat version (ie anything before 9), then a patch hasn't been
released yet. There is a legacy project for supporting those versions at
