openssl: move ${libdir}/[...]/openssl.cnf to ${PN}-conf
Some openssl command line operations like creating an X.509 CSR require the file /usr/lib/ssl-1.1/openssl.cnf to exist and fail if it doesn't root@qemux86-64:~# openssl req -out my.csr -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout my.key Can't open /usr/lib/ssl-1.1/openssl.cnf for reading, No such file or directory 140289168594176:error:02001002:system library:fopen:No such file or directory:../openssl-1.1.1g/crypto/bio/bss_file.c:69:fopen('/usr/lib/ssl-1.1/openssl.cnf','r') 140289168594176:error:2006D080:BIO routines:BIO_new_file:no such file:../openssl-1.1.1g/crypto/bio/bss_file.c:76: which is the case e.g. in core-image-minimal with just the package openssl-bin added to the image by declaring IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " openssl-bin" e.g. in local.conf. The file did not exist in the aforementioned image / configuration because it was packaged to the main openssl package FILES_${PN} =+ "${libdir}/ssl-1.1/*" (there is no other FILES specification that would match the file either) and path/to/poky/build$ rpm --query --package --list tmp/deploy/rpm/core2_64/openssl-1.1.1g-r0.core2_64.rpm [...] /usr/lib/ssl-1.1/openssl.cnf [...] Hence move /usr/lib/ssl-1.1/openssl.cnf (and openssl.cnf.dist as it seems closely related) to the ${PN}-conf package to have it installed with ${PN}-bin, which already (indirectly) depends on ${PN}-conf. Note that the openssl recipe has the comment Add the openssl.cnf file to the openssl-conf package. Make the libcrypto package RRECOMMENDS on this package. This will enable the configuration file to be installed for both the openssl-bin package and the libcrypto package since the openssl-bin package depends on the libcrypto package. but openssl-conf only contained /etc/ssl/openssl.cnf path/to/poky/build$ rpm --query --package --list tmp/deploy/rpm/core2_64/openssl-conf-1.1.1g-r0.core2_64.rpm /etc /etc/ssl /etc/ssl/openssl.cnf /usr/lib/ssl-1.1/openssl.cnf is actually only a symlink that points to ../../../etc/ssl/openssl.cnf. Other files and directories in /usr/lib/ssl-1.1/ were considered as well because they seem to be configuration files and / or related to (symlinks pointing to) /etc. They were not moved though, because based on our use case and testing moving the openssl.cnf symlink is sufficient for fixing the immediate problem and we lack knowledge about the other files in order to make a decision to change their packaging.
