Encryption

From kwall@kurtwerks.com

TESTED ON COL 2.2 REDHAT 5.2 and RH6.0 Linux Kernels 2.2.x

Encryption is (or was) subject to an export embargo from the United States. The library is NOT part of a normal distribution and must be obtained separately.

To compile programs which require it, ie ssh, or any passwords, you are required to obtain a source from outside the USA.

1) There are COL-ready rpms at: 

ftp.linuxland.de/pub/OpenLinux/crypto/2.2/

There are a few other goodies there too. 

2) the library should end up in /lib

At link time, you need to specifiy -lcrypt on your gcc command line to incorporate this library.
