Compile Errors on CentOS 7.8 (solution)

Post by NightHawk »

I ran into compilation issues that are addressed in this thread but the solution for me differed and the thread is locked:

I could NOT find & - only libcrypto.a & libssl.a on my system
Taking the information from that thread, I found that openssl-devel supplied the *.so files

I did the following rather than the solutions mentioned:
yum install openssl-devel
mv /usr/local/ssl/lib/libssl.a /usr/local/ssl/lib/libssl.a.old
mv /usr/local/ssl/lib/libcrypto.a /usr/local/ssl/lib/libcrypto.a.old
ln -s /usr/lib64/
ln -s /usr/lib64/

From that point, I was able to compile successfully and do a make install without issue

* UnrealIRCd compiled successfully
* YOU ARE NOT DONE YET! Run "make install" to install UnrealIRCd !

I hated to start a new thread on this but hope it helps others or can guide them to a solution that doesn't involve recompiling openssl
