I could not find anywhere a way to install libssl 1.0.0 in my Fedora 28 (In a 64bit architecture). Does someone knows a way to possibly achieve that?

Thanks in advance.

@WizardLink What packages needs that lib?

It is not a package, a software needs it. More specifically a steam ds needs it and to run it specifically needs 1.0.0

The closest available for fc28 is compat-openssl10.

dnf install compat-openssl10

That would provide which may be a good enough match for libssl 1.0.0.

It needs to be specifically 1.0.0, thanks for the support though!

The following worked for me to get compat-openssl10 recognised as 1.0.0:

cd /usr/lib64
ln -s
ln -s

libssl is part of OpenSSL.

Run rpm -qa openssl or dnf info openssl to check your version installed/available. In the repositories of Fedora 28, it is currently


In order to compile with the libssl api, you need openssl-devel

Yes, it is in that exact version but I need libssl 1.0.0 specifically for a software to properly work in a 64 bit architecture.

OpenSSL 1.0.0 is not supported by upstream any more. Having steam depend on that software and version is a pretty massive security bug. Can you update steam? Does the new version have sane dependencies, i.e. on version 1.0.2 or later? If not, I highly recommend not using software from such irresponsible or incompetent authors.

Nothing these developers can do. The engine is too old.
