I'm new in Linux and Installed OpenFOAM-1.4 - getting the following error message while trying to run FoamX:

...openssl-0.9.7: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I know that the library libssl.so.0.9.7 is missing but can you help me to install it, in which folder?

appreciate any help!!!

It depends on the linux distribution.
On a redhat based distribution (like Fedora, or CentOS) just type, as root "yum install openssl" and it resolves all the dependencies for you.
With debian, use apt-get, but I'm not a "debianist", so I can't help you with this.
On SuSe, use "yast" (yast2 is the gui for yast, very easy to use).
etc...

it surprises me, frankly, that any "modern" linux install would come without openssl at all. It seems more likely to me that it has openssl 0.9.8<something>, which would install libssl.0.9.8.so, and symlinks to libssl.so, etc

any installed ssl library is most likely to be found in /usr/lib or /usr/local/lib.

If this is the case, you have 2 options. The first is to download, build, and install openssl 0.9.7, making sure that the existing symlinks to 0.9.8 don't get broken. The second is to rebuild FoamX from source.

Right, in such a case you can even resolve with a link to the newer version of the library, with the name of the old one. (ln -s /usr/lib/libssl.so.0.9.8 /usr/lib/libssl.so.0.9.7)
I resolved with this trick a couple of times, but pay attention to the existing files!
