[aur-general] [google-talkplugin] How to build an older version of openssl

Hello, guys.

Google Talk Plugin for GMail is not working anymore for me (and
others...) because it relies on libssl.so.0.9.8. But for my surprise,
the binary GoogletalkPlugin is a 32 bits executable, even for the 64
bits package. It comes right after the original deb package, provided
by Google.

To make things short, I tried to "downgrade" the lib32-openssl
PKGBUILD to version 0,9,8n. It compiles fine, but the resulting
libraries (libcrypto.so.0.9.8 and libssl.so.0.9,8) are ELF64, when
they should be ELF32. You can view the PKGBUILD in

So, should I need a 32 bits chroot for that? Shouldn't the multilib
compiler be enough?

A: Because it obfuscates the reading.
Q: Why is top posting so bad?
