Backport #3395

Ruby does not appear to build against openssl-1.0.0a

Added by rmenessec (Rebecca Menessecc) over 9 years ago. Updated about 8 years ago.



Just as in the subject. I'm using Gentoo Linux. I've tried ruby-1.8.7_p249-r2 and ruby-1.9.1_p376 so far. At the moment, I've reverted to 1.8.7; 1.9.1 not appearing to have an advantage as regards building against current OpenSSL.

I'm attaching the segment of the build log where the emerge failed.

Ruby upstream have fixed this in trunk, see ticket #2022.

Yes, from the commentary it appears the fix is incomplete:

I hate to bug, but is there any interest in fixing this? I'm still having to build Ruby without SSL support.

Yui: Thanks for adding me to 1.9.1 members.

Users: Now we have 1.9.2 and it should support OpenSSL 1.0.0a. Add your comment if you need OpenSSL 1.0.0a support for 1.9.1.

Yugui: Let me know if would decide to push the patch release for 1.9.1.

Closing this ticket as 'Rejected' since there's no claim in 9 months. Yugui-san can reopen this when she decided to make new 1.9.1 release. I don't think it would happen though.
