I am trying to compile openssl 0.9.6 (I know very old version) from source on ubuntu 16.04 LTS. I did following
./configure shared --openssldir=/home/segnate/dev/openssl
On doing make install the installation failed with error like below
/usr/bin/ranlib: /usr/local/ssl/lib/libcrypto.so: File format not recognized
Similar error occurred for libcrypto.so.0 , libcrypto.so.0.9.6 , libssl.so , libssl.so.0 , libssl.so.0.9.6
How do I get rid of above error?
