I have a new server running RHEL 3 and I am trying to sort out a problem
with ftp. I can ftp out from it but when I try to ftp to the server I
get this message:
"in.ftpd: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.2: cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory".
libssl.so.2 is not present on the server.
The following are the versions of openssl and vsftpd:
Do I need to install errata for this? If so, I have some further
The machine is not going to be connected to the Internet, and we do not
have broadband here where we are configuring it. Because of this I see
no advantage in installing up2date, and only problems if it ties up our
net connection for hours. I would rather download patches once (a
colleague can do this over his home broadband connection) and save them
so I can install them by default on future servers (of which there will
be quite a few).
Is is possible to download i686 errata for RHEL3 from the web? The Red
Hat site suggests that up2date is the only method of getting these errata.
Will CentOS binary packages work seamlessly with RHEL? Will using them
cause warranty/support issues?
Should I just download the source rpms from RedHat and compile each one
individually? (Sounds like a lot of work...)
