I wouldn't say I'm a unix dummy, or a unix expert, but I have few other options. So I installed MkLinux on an old powermac 6100 I had around. I got it up and running too, its on my network, its apache web server works (though I need to install PHP) I downloaded the RC5-72 client and it runs great. There are a few things I need help with though. It has an FTP server running, but I can't figure out how to configure it so that I can upload. WIth upload ability, I can connect to the computer in the finder and edit the pages its going to host directly in GoLive. The other problem is SSH. I want SSH, so I tried to install OpenSSH. When I compile, it complains about libcrypto and SSL, so I installed OpenSSL. That seemed to go fine, except that OpenSSH, when I try to compile, is still unhappy. Thats really just about it. This machine isn't going to do much. There is an alternative though, referring back to ftp. Is there an Apple File-sharing Protocol server for unix? I know someone makes a samba server for unix. That would be even better, but FTP will do if it needs to.
When i "./configure" OpenSSH, it runs through many many checks, then finally tells me the following,
"configure: error: *** Can't find recent OpenSSL libcrypto (see config.log for details) ***"
(of coarse the log just said the same thing over again)
Then I downloaded, configured, make'd, and installed OpenSSL. And It seemed to go through fine, no errors or anything, but OpenSSH still tells me the same thing when I try to compile it.
Has anyone ever done this before? It says its supported, but whenever I try to boot off the installation CD, it freezes. To be more specific, it starts to boot Mac OS, then it gets to the "choose your OS" window where you can choose to fully boot Mac or dissolve Mac OS and enter into Linux. When... (0 Replies)
