OpenSSL on a RH/Linux 6.2
I was in the process of installing the module:
Net::SSLeay on a RH/Linux 6.2 which currently has the OpenSSL/0.9.5a installed from the rpm I assume.
When I was attempting to install the module, it complains about needed a newer version of OpenSSL 0.9.6a or higher.
Not having alot luck in the past with these rpm files, was hoping someone could suggest what rpm or source is recommend to upgrade. The server is currently using the 2.4.10 i686 Kernel

First you want to do an rpm -e OpenSSL-0.9.5a (or whatever the name is), to uninstall the existing OpenSSL.
You could probably find the RPM somewhere in RedHat's "up-do-date" directory in the RedHat 6.2 section on the ftp server.
However, I recommend just getting the source from www.openssl.org. Unzip and untar the file, and then inside, you will find documentation on compiling and installing. It is quite easy.
