I've manually compiled openssl and ofcourse it works. Apt does not see the package as being installed.
After that i've been trying to download stuff using wget. Everytime when i tried downloading from a https-source it gave me a message complaining about how certificates of some sort where missing. Apparently package ca-certificates was missing. I was trying to install it with apt-get install ca-certificates. But when i did that, it also wanted to install the dependency openssl. I Aborted because i didnt want to overwrite my own install of openssl.
Finally i chose for apt-get download ca-certificates and dpkg -i ca-certificates.deb and wget was working again.
Everytime im trying to install something, apt is complaining about how dependencies where not met.
I was trying to mark openssl as being installed using apt-mark manual openssl however, somehow its still looking for a installation of some sort before its added to the list.
The reason im making this such a long story is because im not entirely sure my approach was the right one.
Should i also compile ca-certificates? So i wont get any error messages about unmet dependencies? or is there a way to actually make apt forget about openssl? im looking for a solution and some guidance about what more experienced people would do.
Can you help me out?
