CVS Install problem


#1

I am trying to install the latest Asterisk CVS release on a Mandriva 2006 x86_64 server.

I have successfully installed the zaptel and libpri, but cannot get asterisk to install… I get the following:

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

I am assuming the problem is with ssl since that is what the first line references, but I have installed openssl…

Thanks in advance.

Mike

Have you also installed the openssl-dev libraries? Are you installing a CVS HEAD? If so, you have to keep in mind that the CVS HEAD is unstable and you are better off installing a stable version of Asterisk.

I have since switched to the 1.0.9 release of Asterisk and I’m still getting the same issue…

Do you know where I can get the openssl-dev tarball? I’ve looked all over openssl.org.

Thank you and please advise.

In most Linux distros it is available as part of the package, just need to use the package manager to load it from the discs (ie - YaST under SuSE). If not I do believe it is in the standard source tarballs on openssl.org.
