A small error I encountered

Post by exception » Mon Mar 13, 2023 6:51 am

I'm a student at school and recently used the open-source OpenVPN to develop a VPN. Of course I'm only for learning, I got an error after downloading and running the source code from github.

"CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:31 (include):
include could not find load file:
openssl/openssl.cmake"

I don't have this document and I don't know what this document does :shock:

Sounds like you may need to download the openssl-devel package(s) for your platform.

Encountering a CMake error while working with OpenVPN source code? The missing file 'openssl.cmake' might be crucial for the build process. Ensure OpenSSL is installed on your system, and you might need to adjust the CMakeLists.txt file or download the required file separately. Dig into the project documentation or forums for guidance.
