Hello all,

I am trying to install rdestop verstion 1.5, I have also tried to install version 1.4 too. My OS is Fedora 8.

When I try to compile it, I am told it cannot find the openssl directories;

checking for OpenSSL directory... Not found

Couldn't find your OpenSSL library installation dir
Use --with-openssl option to fix this problem

This is the syntax for the option;

--with-openssl=DIR look for OpenSSL at DIR/include, DIR/lib

I have not been able to get it to wor... I have tried --with-openssl=/usr/ and all sorts of other combinations.

Was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.

Why not just use yum?

sudo yum install rdesktop

and if you want a gui front end

sudo yum install tsclient

If sudo is not enabled then:

su -
yum install rdesktop
yum install tsclient

Hope this helps

Hello:
Likely you need to install openssl-devel ?

yum install openssl-devel

then try your installation again
