Hello, I am having trouble building the plugin distribution, on debian linux...
I am trying to build nagios-plugins-1.4.3
I'm using the debian sarge distribution.....
The error occurs for some reason when trying to link in the ssl library...
OpenSSL is installed....and the library archive appears in the correct
Here's the error:
gcc -Wall -g -O2 -o check_http check_http.o sslutils.o netutils.o utils.o
../lib/libcoreutils.a -lnsl -lresolv -lssl -lcrypto -Wl,--rpath
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lssl
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
Here's the contents of my /usr/local/ssl/lib:
ls -l /usr/local/ssl/lib
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1675726 Oct 13 2005 libcrypto.a
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 259620 Oct 13 2005 libssl.a
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Oct 13 2005 pkgconfig
I thought maybe it was looking for a shared .so library, but can't seem
to find where to get one of those (I did find one in /usr/lib, but that
didn't seem to work)....
I finally commented out the --rpath part, so that it succeeded linking the
static .a library.....But then it got a bunch of other compile errors, looking
for SSL_CTX_* type symbols....
I think something's just wrong here....before I go too much further, has anyone
had any luck with this on debian sarge distro?
