Hi all,

I'm trying to build ruby 2.3.1 on linux 2.6.32-642.1.1.el6.x86_64 and I'm running into errors with openssl. I've tried building with rvm and I've tried building separately, but I can't figure out which version of openssl is supposed to be supported with ruby 2.3.1. I've installed openssl 1.0.2-beta3, openssl 1.0.2.j and openssl 1.1.0b and none of them seem to be working. They all give error:

configuring openssl
Ignore OpenSSL broken by Apple.
Please use another openssl. (e.g. using `configure --with-openssl-dir=/path/to/openssl')
Failed to configure openssl. It will not be installed.

When I force it past that issue, it then won't run gem commands because it gives an SSL error. I'm not sure what to do here, so advice please? Sorry if this is the wrong repo to ask this. Let me know a more appropriate one if possible. Thanks.

Hello @denisemauldin,

Which command did you use to install Ruby 2.3.1? If it was rvm install, then you might be commenting on the wrong project, since RVM is not related to us at all. If it was rbenv install or ruby-build, on the other hand, then you're at the right place.

I'm not sure why you're getting these openssl failures. Ruby 2.3.1 should work with 1.0.2g and 1.0.2h in our experience, and that means that 1.0.2j should also probably work. Have you tried locating your openssl install and passing a path to it using --with-openssl-dir like the error message suggested?

One confusing thing is that the configure script complained about "Ignore OpenSSL broken by Apple", but you're not on macOS at all. It sounds like the configure script might have gotten confused by something at this point, but I'm not sure what. /cc @hsbt

Can you tell us a bit more about your OS?

Ruby 2.3.1 is not works with OpenSSL-1.1.0. This feature is after Ruby 2.4.0.

And I wondered why this error was displayed on linux environment.

Thanks! I blew away everything and installed 1.0.2j and it works now. I think 1.1.0b was the previous one I'd had installed.

Install libssl1.0-dev instead of libssl-dev
Ruby 2.3.x does not works with OpenSSL-1.1.0. This feature is after Ruby 2.4.0.

See [1], [2] & [3] for details.
