Mapbox / openSSL

  • Hi there.

    I am currently trying to utilize a "mapbox" map inside an android application. I am using Qt 5.7 on windows. When I try to run example code that I have found online I merely get a blank screen on my tablet. It is my understanding that I need to include the 2 built openSSL libraries but I am struggling to do so. I was originally getting errors relating to not finding the libraries but after tracking down some prebuilt ones I appear to get this error.

    W (null):0 ((null)): QSslSocket: cannot resolve SSLv2_client_method
    W (null):0 ((null)): QSslSocket: cannot resolve SSLv2_server_method

        return app.exec();

    I also tried building my own openSSL libs using MSYS2 from this documentation:

    it appeared to configure okay but then got to the "make build_libs" stage and received this error

    make build_libs
    making all in crypto...

    I even tried making an ubuntu virtual machine and tried to build Qt there as I read that is comes with openssl enabled as default on linux. But after installing and restarting the VM it just hangd with a strange graphical glitch. I may create a dual boot for ubuntu and try again on linux without a virtual machine, but would prefer to be able to use windows to build my apps. Any thoughts?

  • Did you put the OpenSSL binaries in your path? Placing these in my path are typically enough for me to get past the issue. If you got pre-built binaries for Windows, were they built with the same version of VS you are building with? I believe there may be some dependency, so you could end up trying to build with 2015, and using 2013 built OpenSSL libs.
