[erlang-bugs] Crypto app and Solaris Openssl libraries
Thu Sep 27 19:12:27 CEST 2012
According to the documentation:
"The current implementation of the Erlang Crypto application is based on
the OpenSSL package version 0.9.7 or higher."
Unfortunately, the Openssl project released the original 0.9.7
2002-12-31 and the last release 0.9.7m 2007-02-23, so that statement is
misleading at best. Since Openssl was not 100% API compliant for all of
those releases (adding new functions in 0.9.7e and 0.9.7h) the docs need
to be much more specific.
We have an application that must support Solaris 10u6, which shipped
with Openssl 0.9.7d (we cannot upgrade the system library and I'd rather
not provide a thirdparty Openssl package). I am able to build erlang,
but the crypto module fails to load due to missing symbols.
So I have two questions:
1) Can anyone confirm that the crypto app actually supports 0.9.7e and
newer (or indeed what is the earliest release that is actually supported)?
2) Would you accept a patch for crypt.c to stub out the unsupported
0.9.7[x] methods with atom_notsup (much like the HAVE_SHA### stuff is
Thanks in advance...
