Build Ruby 2.3 fails due to an openssl error #1321
I get an openssl error when trying to install Ruby 2.3.X. I have successfully installed 2.4.1, 2.5.5 and 2.6.2. It seems openssl 1.1 doesn't support Ruby < 2.3 but openssl 1.1 is required by ruby-build.
operative system: openSUSE Leap 15.1
It may be related to #850
Log rbenv install 2.3.3
Ruby 2.3 didn't support OpenSSL 1.1.x. and it's already EOL status.
I'm not sure what means this. The definition of ruby-build for Ruby 2.3 uses openssl-1.0.x: https://github.com/rbenv/ruby-build/blob/master/share/ruby-build/2.3.8#L1
The ruby-build openSUSE package requires
I have removed this requirement in the openSUSE ruby-build package and installed
I am not sure if there is a nice way to fix this problem apart of what I did (which is not really nice and uses a modified package). I know Ruby 2.3 is already in EOL status, but it is still used in many places, such as programming challenges like Google Code Jam and Hacker Earth (for those kind of things I find ruby-build + rbenv really useful).
