Asterisk compile error

i’m sorry everyone in advance, but i’m trying to compile asterisk on fedora core 4, and i’m getting the following error and it just quits on me.

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lssl
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [asterisk] Error 1

then it dumps me back to the prompt, i’m thinking i’m missing a library somewhere but not sure what one, any help would be greatly appreciated.


try install openssl package or check for openssl source
