SSL Libraries are not loading

Need help. Here are the facts:

- I have a Raspberry 3 Pi
- Running Linux in ARM
- I have CQRlog 2.2
- ssl-lib dev is up to date, I have the latest version
- If I export the log to a file I can perfectly sign and upload it thru Tqsl
- I can perfectly download the report from Lotw and import it in Cqrlog

But, I'm having problems uploading and downloading to LOTW.

When I try to upload to Lotw I get:

Error: -2

And when I try to download from Lotw I get:

Not Logged
Error: -2
Error: ssl_openssl

After running CQRlog with debug, we've identified that SSL Libraries are not loading.

Anyone have experienced the same issue? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Re: SSL Libraries are not loading

Hi Santiago,

I know about that bug and going to fix it on the weekend. Also would like to release bugfix version.

I am having the exact same

I am having the exact same issue with my Raspberry pi and I downloaded the latest version from here on the site, and my Pi reports I have the latest libssl-dev loaded ....

Getting the Same Problem in Version 2.3.0

I am getting the same error messages on LoTW upload and download attempts with version 2.3.0. I installed using cqrlog_2.3.0-1_armhf.deb on my Raspberri Pi 3 Model B+ running the latest Raspbian.

If I can help in any way, please let me know. I can download source code, compile, and run it if you have something to test. And I can also provide any logs or other reports from my system. Thank you for all of your time and hard work.

Tried Building From Source

For what it's worth, I tried removing the binary deb and building from source. But I got the same error when I performed a "Download and process data from LoTW website".


Hello Petr, and thanks for the good news. Hopefully you find the bug fix!!!..

Any news?

Petr, hello!. Did you get a way around the bug for the SSL libraries?

re: Still experiencing this problem; any progress?

Hi Kevin,

the fix should be part of recent version. Install libssl-devel package and it should work.

re: Still experiencing this problem; any progress?

Hi, Petr, thanks for writing back.

I'm running Raspian 9.4 (stretch) and don't have a 'libssl-devel' package:

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo apt-get install libssl-devel

E: Unable to locate package libssl-devel
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo apt-get install libssl-dev

No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Raspbian

The 'libssl-dev' package I do have doesn't allow me to upload or download from LoTW:

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ cqrlog --debug=1

Note that no SSL libraries are found.

This is the section of the debug output where the 'Error: -2' occurs (I changed my password):

select * from cqrlog_main
/usr/bin/tqsl -d -l "KC3KZ Home" /home/pi/.config/cqrlog/lotw/2018-08-20_13-58-52.adi -x********

Any other suggestions to correct this problem?

Thanks, again, for all your help.

Tried Building Latest Git Commit with libssl-dev Installed


It is not working, and I'd like to help with testing if possible. I'll describe what I tried so far.

I have libssl-dev version 1.1.0f-3+deb9u2 installed. First I tried building the latest release (2.3.0-1) from source. I discovered I had to run ./remove_unknown_properties. But that didn't resolve the problem. Then I built the latest github master branch commit (7490981) from source but I had the same problem.

I'll try some other troubleshooting, but please let me know if there is anything else I can try. Thank you.

Tried libssl1.0-dev

I also tried building with libssl1.0-dev 1.0.2l-2+deb9u3 instead, but got the same problem. It's just not finding the libraries when executing the program for some reason. I'm out of ideas for now.

A more recent version?

Hello, I seem to have this issue, too. Running 2.3.0 (001) Date:2018-06-17 - on Raspberry Pi. Is there a more recent build I should locate and install?
