    Question "No package 'openssl' found" error

    Hi all,
    I'm trying to install ruTorrent by following this wiki: http://code.google.com/p/rutorrent/wiki/MainInstall
    All of the dependencies are already installed on my system including openssl (I've checked that using synaptic and apt-get)
    everything went smoothly until I've reached the 6th line in the rTorrent installation "./configure". All of the output is 'ok' or 'yes' until the following:
    Code:
    checking for OPENSSL... configure: error: Package requirements (openssl) were not met:
    
    No package 'openssl' found
    
    Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
    installed software in a non-standard prefix.
    
    Alternatively, you may set the environment variables OPENSSL_CFLAGS
    and OPENSSL_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
    See the pkg-config man page for more details.
    this is the output I'm getting when running "sudo apt-get install openssl":
    Code:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    openssl is already the newest version.
    The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
      libapache2-mod-scgi libxmlrpc-c3-0 libtorrent11
    Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    and this is my PKG_CONFIG_PATH: (which I've exported after seeing it fixed a similar problem on another forum post)
    Code:
    /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
    all of the above attempts did not achieve anything, and the output from the "./configure" is still the same.

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    Hey I just posted this,
    And this is crazy,
    but bump, maybe?

    sudo apt-get install libssl-dev

    Wink Re: "No package 'openssl' found" error

    I've actually already solved it, with the following
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install openssl-devel
    which if I remember correctly also installed libssl-dev as a dependency.

    Thank you anyway.
