Forum OpenACS Q&A: nsssl, naviserver 4.99.11, make error


on ubuntu server 14.04
after quitting nsd..

cd /usr/local/
mv /usr/local/ns /usr/local/ns-old

I ran gustafn/ script to install a fresh naviserver 4.99.11, then

cd /usr/local/ns/modules
hg clone
mv nsssl.git nsssl
cd nsssl

Make returns:

# make

make: *** [nsssl.o] Error 1

Is there a parameter needed for make, or?

Hmm.. states:

# SSL driver for NaviServer 4.99.12 #

So, I updated gustafn/ to 4.99.12 for both ns and modules, but naviserver 4.99.12 not found.

I must have caught releases in between synchronization. I'll wait a few hours..

Heh, nsssl 4.99.12 was issued May 11.

What am I missing? page is blank..

System is now working using nsssl and naviserver 4.99.11.

I downloaded the modules tar files from sourceforge per the script, and manually installed.

You have to take always the matching modules version. This is why the sourceforge archive contains both, a tar file of the main naviserver release and a tar file of the matching modues. contains always the newest release. NaviServer 4.99.12 is not released yet.

Btw, starting with NaviServer 4.99.12, nsssl will be integrated with NaviServer (no separate module), which allows a tighter integration. For example, ns_http will accept http and https urls, there will be an improved crypto support, etc. The release of NaviServer 4.99.12 should happen during summer.

Thanks for the clarification and news about nsssl naviserver integration planned for 4.99.12.

I follow naviserver/nsssl development and think I saw a hint about the coming integration. I was so excited that even a few weeks later the memory imprint lead me to misreading the release notes for 4.99.11! LOL.
