The documentation for a BLFS installation of openssl is at http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/stable/postlfs/openssl.html. However, those instructions are slightly out of date; while the documentation says to use openssl-1.0.2k.tar.gz, that's
no longer correct. The correct package is now openssl-1.0.2l.tar.gz.
- Create a "testuser" account that you can access on a virtual terminal. You can either do this by hand, or you can use "useradd".
- Do not use the optional Kerberos package. It's not necessary, and it doesn't contain anything useful for any of the extra credit/make up assignments.
- You must also install the certificate authority certificates package which is discussed in the "Configuration Information" section. The BLFS documentation
for this is at http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/stable/postlfs/cacerts.html.
- You must also install the BLFS bootscripts package; the documentation is at http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/stable/introduction/bootscripts.html.
