Description

If you lack libssl tor's configure fails with...

checking for openssl directory... configure: WARNING: Could not find a linkable openssl.  If you have it installed somewhere unusual, you can specify an explicit path using --with-openssl-dir
configure: WARNING: On Debian, you can install openssl using "apt-get install libssl"
configure: WARNING:    You will probably need libssl-dev too.
configure: error: Missing libraries; unable to proceed.

This is all fine except the openssl package presently doesn't exist in either ubuntu or debian sid...

http://packages.debian.org/sid/libssl
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libssl

Installing libssl-dev did the trick for me.

What package _does_ contain the openssl libraries?

libssl-dev

Is that the .so files, or only the .a libraries?

comment:4 Changed 6 years ago by atagar

I'm not sure. All I know is that with a fresh Ubuntu system I got that configuration error, installed libssl-dev, then configured/compiled tor successfully.

http://superuser.com/questions/179353/how-do-i-find-out-which-package-owns-a-file et al describe how you can tell which package contains a file with the Debian/Ubuntu packaging scheme.

It installs both libssl.a and libssl.so. You can find it on...

http://packages.debian.org/sid/i386/libssl-dev/filelist
