I get this when trying to run bitcoin:


[michael@fed13 64]$ ./bitcoin
./bitcoin: error while loading shared libraries: libcrypto.so.0.9.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Fedora 13 uses this:

/lib64/libcrypto.so.1.0.0a

How can I get around this?

I tried a symlink and running ldd and ldconfig to no avail.

Thanks
I am having the same issue on Slackware64 13.1.
I am having the same problem on Fedora 12 32-bit, which also uses libcrypto.so.1.0.0a.

As chupacabra says, a symlink doesn't help because the different library versions contain different symbols.
I too am having issues running it. Same error as above.

Does anyone know how to build it from source on F13? If we could do that, it should work just fine with the new module.
If you're ok with hacking the makefile to update your paths and such, try looking these notes I took to get you started:

I would hope some real developer fixes this so Fedora and Slackware users can use it.  No telling what other distros it fails on.  What was it built on?  I'm guessing Ubuntu/Debian which in my opinion is the most broken fork existing. 

Please guys.  Help us out.

Thanks.

I'm having my wedding today so I dont have time to code.    Shocked
Mazel tov!

Don't be hatin' on Ubuntu though. It's a good OS, and it's helping to drive Linux adoption in the home.

Try building yourself when you get some free time on the honeymoon! Cheesy

Alternatively, try this build: (x86_64 only, sorry)
http://www.alloscomp.com/bitcoin/bitcoin-r102
YAY.  Fedora users try this binary.  http://www.alloscomp.com/bitcoin/bitcoin-r102

Second confirmation that this is the WORKING build for Fedora 13.

Thanks!
Thanks for the link to that binary.

Unfortunately it doesn't work for me. The bash shell gives a "cannot execute binary file" error.

I guess bitcoin-r102 is a 64-bit binary, and I'm running 32-bit Fedora.

True. This is only a 64-bit binary.

If no one else gets a binary uploaded tonight, I will try my hand at building one tomorrow morning.
... I will try my hand at building one ...
I'll pledge my first hundred bitcoins to anyone who can post a 32-bit Fedora version. I'd pledge more, except I don't know how many I'll be able to generate. Perhaps other 32-bit Fedora users can add their pledges to mine.
Please try the 0.3.1 release candidate, it should at least resolve the libcrypto dependency:

Let me know if that works.
