Once I install openssl 0.9.8b I get a bus error from telnet of all things! I'm using 5.4-RELEASE (which may be the problem).
Does anyone have it working ? For myself I went trolling through the code and found the following: It seems that from version 0.9.7j to 0.9.8b the code for BN_CTX_init (in crypto/bn/bn_ctx.c) has changed to stop allowing the static declaration of the BN_CTX type. The helpful author even says it's changed: /* Assume the caller obtained the context via BN_CTX_new() and so is * trying to reset it for use. Nothing else makes sense, least of all * binary compatibility from a time when they could declare a static * variable. */ But libraries like libmp declare static BN_CTX variables in many routines (including mult which telnet calls) and many of these routines are void so couldn't return errors even if it was appropriate to use BN_CTX_new as the author suggests. Given all this, I assume I've missed something blindingly obvious but for the life of me I can't see what it is. Anyone have a misery fixer for me ? K. PS. It seems increasingly like openssl did not have FreeBSD in mind as even the Configure script stopped having "FreeBSD" as an option. ---- Keyran Bayliss [EMAIL PROTECTED] +61 7 3864 1704 0414 645 365 www.its.qut.edu.au/network/ CRICOS No 00213J ---- _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
