As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard) with prefixed line numbers. Alternatively you can here view or download the uninterpreted source code file.

    1 The OpenSSL  shared libraries are often installed in a directory like
    2 /usr/local/ssl/lib.
    3 
    4 If this directory is not in a standard system path for dynamic/shared
    5 libraries, then you will have problems linking and executing
    6 applications that use OpenSSL libraries UNLESS:
    7 
    8 * you link with static (archive) libraries.  If you are truly
    9   paranoid about security, you should use static libraries.
   10 * you use the GNU libtool code during linking
   11   (http://www.gnu.org/software/libtool/libtool.html)
   12 * you use pkg-config during linking (this requires that
   13   PKG_CONFIG_PATH includes the path to the OpenSSL shared
   14   library directory), and make use of -R or -rpath.
   15   (http://www.freedesktop.org/software/pkgconfig/)
   16 * you specify the system-wide link path via a command such
   17   as crle(1) on Solaris systems.
   18 * you add the OpenSSL shared library directory to /etc/ld.so.conf
   19   and run ldconfig(8) on Linux systems.
   20 * you define the LD_LIBRARY_PATH, LIBPATH, SHLIB_PATH (HP),
   21   DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH (MacOS X) or PATH (Cygwin and DJGPP)
   22   environment variable and add the OpenSSL shared library
   23   directory to it.
   24 
   25 One common tool to check the dynamic dependencies of an executable
   26 or dynamic library is ldd(1) on most UNIX systems.
   27 
   28 See any operating system documentation and manpages about shared
   29 libraries for your version of UNIX.  The following manpages may be
   30 helpful: ld(1), ld.so(1), ld.so.1(1) [Solaris], dld.sl(1) [HP],
   31 ldd(1), crle(1) [Solaris], pldd(1) [Solaris], ldconfig(8) [Linux],
   32 chatr(1) [HP].
