Title: move openssl libraries to /lib

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed

Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
Move openssl libraries from /usr/lib to /lib.

Business case (Partner benefit):
openSUSE.org: Recent versions of syslog-ng can't be compiled to run
from /sbin due to having openssl libraries in /usr/lib instead of /lib.
As syslog needs to be available even with /usr available, having it in
/usr/sbin is not an option... Also, openssl libraries are used by
wpa_supplicant, which can't be used now, if /usr is unavailable.

I would rather suggest that this "supporting /usr on NFS" feature to be
dropped.

#2: Jan Engelhardt (jengelh) (2010-01-31 20:10:21) (reply to #1)
I concur. "When was the last time you only included /usr, and what was
the management overhead to keep things in sync and not overwrite each
other..."

#1)
Well, either this or move several libs.
A /usr on nfs4 basically can not work, because several nfs related and
the krb5 libs (sec=krb5 mounts) and most required daemons are in /usr.
It is required to apply 1000 tricks to use /usr on nfs (AFAIS export
/usr using nfs3 on the server - just look into the /etc/init.d/nfs init
script).
The ssl libs are required by (almost every network service)
wpa_supplicant that is required not only for wireless networking
(delayed interface start, no possibility to mount nfs,... over
wireless), but also for the 802.1X authentication on wired networks,
that can't be implemented until now
(https://features.opensuse.org/305356) because of the /usr on nfs
requirement.
