Calling Aerospike C Client from Lua

Are LDFLAGS -lssl -lcrypto -lpthread added?


@darisc were you able to solve this problem? I’m also getting the same error. Funny thing is that on centOS, the lua client works but not on Ubuntu 12+

      I got it to work if you install libssl0.9.8 only and don't 

install libssl as what the ubuntu c client instructions say and symlink

sudo apt-get install libssl0.9.8
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

I’m too new to linux and C to know why this is the case.


The library require libssl1.0.0.

Please verify that’s the version “apt-get install libssl-dev” installed the correct version. If not, “apt-get update” may be required.


Thank you @wchu, it appears that the instructions for the ubuntu build is incorrect. It tells us to install 0.9.8


Can you clarify where this instruction is seen? We will make the appropriate corrections. Thanks



Updated the documentation. Thank you!
