Troubleshooting: Padded for Linux (2.11 and above)

OpenSSL Libs

Padded 2.11 and above uses OpenSSL's LibSSL 0.9.8. It has been tested with the following distributions:

Tested Linux Distribution Extra steps
Debian 4.0 (Etch) Upgrade to Lenny
Debian 5.0 (Lenny) Tested OK
Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope) Tested OK
CentOS 5.0, 5.3 Symlink [...] to [...]

You may need symlinks depending on your distribution's approach to library naming. CentOS 5.3, for example, has /lib/ and Simply symlink these to the appropriate names (/lib/ and so Padded can find them.

From v2.12 onward, where Padded cannot find LibSSL, it will allow you to continue but disable the functionality that requires SSL (HTTPS download and upload).
