  • the download file seems broken, I managed to extract the content by first running "gzip -d" on it, then rename the uncompressed file to *.tar, then untar it's contents:

    gzip -d getpass-2.1-2010-07-28.gz
    mv getpass-2.1-2010-07-28 getpass-2.1-2010-07-28.tar
    tar -xf getpass-2.1-2010-07-28.tar


    Nevertheless, the install script does not work on my SLES11.1 64bit box, missing some crypto library:


    Compiling getpass...
    cc -g -I./include -DUNIX -c -o getpass.o getpass.c
    cc -o getpass getpass.o -L./lib64 -lldapsdk -lpthread -lresolv -ldl -lldapssl -lcrypto
    /usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.3/../../../../x86_64-suse-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lcrypto
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    make: *** [all] Error 1
    ERROR encountered during compilation! getpass NOT installed!

    Anyone who knows which RPMs are required as prerequisite?

  • I have uploaded a new file to Novell. Must have gotten corrupted somehow when they posted it. My original file decompresses just fine with "tar xvzf getpass-2.1-2010-07-28.tar.gz". Odd.

    Did you install the libopenssl-devel package from the SLES 11 SDK (or the openssl-dev package on SLES 10)? The installer lists out that package as being a requirement.
