Cadsoft Eagle on Slackware Current 64bit

Submit to reddit

I want to start building some new electronics projects and I wanted to use some tool to build my schematics. Even if not open source Cadsoft’s Eagle seems to be the de-facto standard between hobbyists.

Unfortunately trying to run the setup on Slackware gives the errors regarding to

/.../bin/eagle: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.1.0.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

libssl.so.1.0.0 and libcrypto.so.1.0.0

I run a multilib setup so that’s not it. It turns that all I had to do was:

1
2
3
cd /lib
ln -s libssl.so.0.9.8 libssl.so.1.0.0
ln -s libcrypt-2.14.1.so libcrypto.so.1.0.0

in /lib

Hope that helps.
