I am git noob so please be kind...
We are trying to use git as part of our product, and have run into a
problem with Red Had 6 systems. Since our IT department only lets
developers use RH5.6 systems we didn't find out about this until pretty
late in the project.
The issue is that git 1.8.3 has a dependency on libcrypto.so.6 and
libssl.so.6. Or more precisely, git-remote-http seems to have dependencies
on these libraries. On our RH5.6 boxes, not a problem as they are found in
/lib64. On RH6 (kernel version 2.6.32-431), big problem, they aren't found
at all when I run git, or do "ldd git-remote-http" to check the
dependencies. As best I can tell, these libraries are not included in the
RH6 standard installation. Now I could beg our IT to install the necessary
RPMs on our RH6 boxes (and yes it will take considerable groveling and
begging) but it doesn't seem that will solve the problem when our s/w is
installed by RH6 customers. They will presumably see the same:
git-remote-help: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.6
error that I see.
I've tried building git with SSL disabled by running configure with the
--with-openssl=no option. That results in a git binary that doesn't have
the dependency on libcrypto, but does nothing about the dependencies in
