Hi all.

I setup both OpenFOAM 1.4.1 and subsequently OpenFOAM 1.4
I did that because I am working on a RHEL4 x86_64 and OpenFOAM 1.4.1 complains that the missing lib is libssl.so.0.9.8 and I can only manage to find a version 0.9.7a; so I decided, after fiddling quite a bit, to opt for the 1.4 sure that the 0.9.7a would have done.
Well, I read all forums and made symbolic links for 0.9.7a to 0.9.7 in /lib AND /usr/lib but FoamX STILL won't start. :-(
Error is the same:
nsd: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.0.9.7: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

Anybody has any idea on what I can do ?
Thanks a lot

You're working with WM_64 (== 64bit OpenFOAM)? Try lib64 instead of lib

Hi !
Thank you for the hint but unfortunately that isn't working either.
Linked /lib64/libssl.so.0.9.7a to both /lib64/libssl.so.0.9.7 AND /usr/lib64/libssl.so.0.9.7 but none worked.

Still get the same error :
nsd: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.0.9.7: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

I was quite confident that the symbolic link was going to work as I've seen a few people having the same problem and solving it that way........... :-(((

Any more ideas ?
Thank you

Hi:
friends! i resolve it.this is what i do:

1, make the soft link into the directory /usr/lib and /usr/lib64 respectively for libssl.so.0.9.8
2, make soft line into the drectory /usr/lib and /urs/lib64 respectively for libcry ibcrypto.so.0.9.8
3 make soft line for libelf.so.0
then enjoy!

I am very happy to see so many peoples used the the
same OS with me , it is so interesting

Hi !

Well well, using a bit of a hint from one and another bit from somebody else, I managed to make it work !
I ended up spreading symbolic links all over the place ( ;-))) ) but in the end it worked.

Thank you all for the support !
