Forum OpenACS Development: OpenSuse install-ns fails

Posted by Raul Rodriguez on
Tried to install openacs on OpenSuse Leap 15.3
When running install scripts for NS ( got this error:

checking for compress2 in -lz... yes
checking for OpenSSL libraries... checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking for openssl/evp.h... no
checking for OPENSSL_init_ssl in -lssl... no
checking for SSL_library_init in -lssl... no
checking for PEM_read_bio_DHparams in -lcrypto... no
checking for X509_STORE_CTX_get_obj_by_subject in -lcrypto... no
configure: WARNING: build without OCSP support, since X509_STORE_CTX_get_obj_by_subject not available
configure: error: OpenSSL support requested but not available

Any help is appreciated.

I think you need to install openssl first, something like this in command line:

zypper install openssl
zypper install libopenssl-devel

install-ns does checks on known operating system whether the pre-requirements are met.... but openSUSE is not included. So far, the following package managers are supported:

  • apt-get (Debian family)
  • yum (Red Hat family old)
  • dnf (Red Hat family new)
  • pkg (FreeBSD, OpenSolaris/OmniOS)
  • pkg_add (OpenBSD)
  • pacman (arch Linux)
  • port (macOS)

Extending the list to include openSUSE/zypper should not be hard, contributions (PR) are welcome...
