Hi!

I'm running Erlang using a newly installed RedHat 8.0 and am trying to use
ssl, but as soon as I try to start it I get errors.

So this is what I did:

* Downloaded the OTP source from erlang.org
* tar -xzvf ...
* cd otp...         (I'm just typing this to show that I haven't done
* configure          anything strange with my system...)
* make
* bin/erl
Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.2 [source] [hipe]

Eshell V5.2  (abort with ^G)
1> ssl:start().
sh: line 1: /home/jesperw/hipe/otp/lib/ssl/priv/bin/ssl_esock: No such
file or directory
        sh: line
1: exec: /home/jesperw/hipe/otp/lib/ssl/priv/bin/ssl_esock: cannot
execute: No such file or directory

{error,{shutdown,{ssl_app,start,[normal,[]]}}}

=INFO REPORT==== 25-Feb-2003::18:52:15 ===
    application: ssl
    exited: {shutdown,{ssl_app,start,[normal,[]]}}
    type: temporary
2> 

Ok, I understand that some files are missing.. But who stole them?
Is there some package missing in my linux installation?

In the configure log there's a lot of no in the ssl section, but in the
end it seems to find OpenSSL at least.
