Description (last modified by jpflori)

This is the same problem as#11243 for Ubuntu 11.04.

Python was recently updated to build without OpenSSL support on
Debian, so I cannot build Sage anymore on my Debian Sid.
python2.6 (2.6.6-9) unstable; urgency=low

  • Build without OpenSSL v2 support. Closes: #613369.
    * Search headers and libraries in multiarch directories too. LP:

Applying the same fix as for Ubuntu 11.04 in #11243 fixes the problem,

so I guess that the spkg should be uploaded once again.

Changing the fix introduced there from :

![...] grep "Ubuntu 11.04"![...]

to :

grep -E "Ubuntu 11.04|Debian GNU/Linux wheezy/sid"

does the trick for me.

The content /etc/issue is similar on Debian Testing (which has the

same python version).

Not sure how universal "grep -E" is.

Are you aware of #11447?

I think these two tickets should be merged into one since they essentially try to solve the same issue, though on silghtly different distros.

Thanks for the link, I somehow did not find it and you're completely right.

The solution there is also much smarter.

Hence this ticket should be closed as duplicate/won't fix.

Sorry for the noise.
