Modify the default version of openssl ?

Hello
On SLES12 SP5, default version of openssl is 1.0.2, and 1.1.1 is optional. Is it possible to modify the default version on 1.1.1 ? (and still have official support...)

    @Frederic Hi, what makes you think it's not supported?

    I see it coming from the update repository?


    Version 1.1.1d-2.23.1 License OpenSSL Architecture x86_64 Repository SLES12-SP5-Updates

    1.1.1 is brought from the update repository, no issue on it but I wonder if we could have only this version installed, no 1.0.

    @Frederic Hi, have you tried uninstalling the older versions? (I don't have 12 SP5 machine to check).

  • FredericFrederic New or Quiet Member

    Yes, I tried a zypper rm openssl-1_0_0 or openssl and it asks to uninstall 80+ libraries (with zypper, yast2, etc...) :

    @Frederic Hi You need to look at the specific versions to uninstall.... eg 1.0.2p-1.13
    Use zypper se -si openssl

    Hi !
    zypper se -si gives me the installed package but how to remove a specific version such as openssl 1.0.2p ? (zypper rm openssl gives me same result as for openssl-1_0_0)

  • malcolmlewismalcolmlewis Knowledge Partner

    @Frederic Hi, should be the name, version and the arch from the -si output, for example;

    zypper rm openssl-1.0.2p-1.13.x86_64

    it doesn't work... or rather it works like the previous one : it asks to uninstall the same 83 packages.

    @Frederic It's a noarch not a x86_64, but there shouldn't be any issues, CVE's are backported, so you can always check the changelogs or SSC -> My Tools for more information.

  • @Frederic: Did you get this resolved, I have same issue trying to change it to default version. Its not happening. Just curious to understand if you had any solution.?

    @Ramakrishna unfortunately not :(
