Re: Why Fedora 10 still uses openssl pkg from 2007, 4 releases old?

on right description this issue, its look like some problem in certificate

But no matter how it's related with, surprising for me is fact,
that Fedora 10 uses openssl package version 0.9.8g released in 2007,
while actual released version is 0.9.8j, four versions newer.

If you check the source RPM's spec file, you'll see that most (if not
all) of the "j" patches have been backported to the "g" version.  The
trick is that the "j" version bumps the .so for /lib[64]/libcrypto.so.7
and /lib[64]/libssl.so.7 from ".7" to ".8" and a lot of existing code
would break because they want .7.  Hope that explains it for you.
