Installation of liboauth

Apply a patch for the current version of openssl:

patch -Np1 -i ../liboauth-1.0.3-openssl-1.1.0-3.patch

Install liboauth by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-static &&
make

If you wish to build the documentation (needs Doxygen-1.9.4), issue:

make dox

To test the results, issue: make check.

Now, as the root user:

make install

If you have previously built the documentation, install it by running the following commands as the root user:

install -v -dm755 /usr/share/doc/liboauth-1.0.3 &&
cp -rv doc/html/* /usr/share/doc/liboauth-1.0.3

Command Explanations

--disable-static: This switch prevents installation of static versions of the libraries.

--enable-nss: Use this switch if you want to use Mozilla NSS instead of OpenSSL.
