How to get libssl.so.0.9.6 file?

Sorry if am too stupid to make it myself. But, after I finally found openssl-0.9.6l-1.pkg.tar.gz on ftp (/release I think) and then I did

#pacman -Up /root/archivepkg/openssl-0.9.6l-1.pkg.tar.gz
loading package data... done.
checking for file conflicts... done.
upgrading openssl... done.
#

I started enjoying... until I realized - libssl.so.0.9.6 didn't appear in /lib :?
What's wrong? Is it me or wrong package?
Thank you for your time in advance.

I got the same error when trying to run smssend (from TUR).

smssend: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.0.9.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Re: How to get libssl.so.0.9.6 file?

Hi! At last some joy! Gnumeric is working yikes despite giving some warnings during startup (I will analyze them later) .
If anyone is interested:
1. downloaded openssl-0.9.6l-1.pkg.tar.gz from ftp://ftp:parrswood.net/Mirrors/ftp.archlinux.org/release
2. extracted manually libssll.so.0.9.6 and libcrypto.so.0.9.6 with TUGZip on my WinXP (tar was not working...)
3. copied to /lib
4. changed permissions (made the same like libssl.so.0.9.7)
Finish.
Now I'm going to test other packages.

...On the other hand, I would like pacman to be more clever by issuing warnings what might go wrong before I press "Yes"!
Moreover, I think In such cases it has to be announced a warning, even maybe on the front page, that the whole archlinux community is (or might) experience not working programs because e.g. of openssl upgrade from ...to .... and how to repair if you have fallen a victim.
Imagine what a cry would be if some famous Co. most of the software stopped working after upgrades!...
Maybe I want too much. Sorry. Just my thoughts.

With respect to all Arch creators and users,
Arijus
P.S. Does anyone need those files?

It's also been discussed quite a bit on the forum...

I can understand your frustration, but the information is there.

Why not update OpenSSL 0.9.7 then use "ln" command, say,
ln -s /usr/lib/libssl.so.0.9.7 /usr/lib/libssl.so.0.9.6
FYI.

After you upgraded without thinking about the consequencies - you don't have /usr/lib/libssl.so.0.9.6! Or at it least happened to me :oops: and rasat  tongue
That's why - if anyone is interested:

 
1. download openssl-0.9.6l-1.pkg.tar.gz from /release 

2. extract libssll.so.0.9.6 and libcrypto.so.0.9.6 from 1. (I did with TUGZip on my WinXP (tar was not working...) 

3. copy them both to /lib 

4. change permissions (make the same like libssl.so.0.9.7) if needed

Finished.

That's why you make a symlink, like he said.

Re: How to get libssl.so.0.9.6 file?

Sorry, ganlu,  I haven't noticed your -s for symbolic link. I only could guess that it should work but I didn't try. Haven't you (or others) noticed any problems with any apps after that?
