If you want to see what the SPEC file looked like, the  IBM AIX toolbox
download site is below:

Openssl and other high encryption rpms are available from: (need to
register "free").

Make sure you have the perl LPP installed.. It should be on the
installation media somewhere..
# lslpp -L "perl*"
  Fileset                      Level  State  Type  Description

I had compiled my ssh Version on my Package Server.
This is the Version: OpenSSH_3.9p1, OpenSSL 0.9.6m 17 Mar 2004
I install my Server over NIM with the Versions above.

My Problem ist that i migrate one Server from AIX 4.3.3 to AIX 5.2
After the Migration we deinstalled the openssl and openssh and installed
the new Version.

What im not understand is wy the prerequisites will not be found in the
openssl installation procedure.

# rpm -ivh openssl-0.9.6m-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm openssl-devel-0.9.6
m-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm openssl-doc-0.9.6m-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
        /bin/sh is needed by openssl-0.9.6m-1
        /usr/bin/perl is needed by openssl-0.9.6m-1
        libc.a(shr.o) is needed by openssl-0.9.6m-1

Do you know how the rpm installscript checks the requisites ?

Kind Regards
