Forum OpenACS Q&A: build depends for ssl module
Trying to build naviserver-4.99.17, and I'm stuck trying to get the ssl module built, it won't even configure, I think because the dependencies are not installed, and I can't find what they are to install them. I'm using just the naviserv tarball, not the modules tarball at all.
Could it be that a different ssl module in the modules tarball would be better?
Also, if I do substitute a different module, how would I tell the build system not to build the module I'd be replacing, and instead build the module that it's replacing?
One potential problem might be, that you did not notice, that nsssl is integrated with NaviServer since 4.99.12. So, the old and extra modules is not needed in newer NaviServer versions.
My configure invocation for naviserv is this line:
./configure --prefix=/home/build/inst --with-tcl=/home/build/inst/lib
But, the configure is failing to produce its files. What do you need to see?
I believe the reason it's failing is I don't have the nsssl build requirements installed, and I need to know what those are. I'm running debian 9, aka stretch.
ps: thanks again
glad, that this is build problem is sorted out.
