    Install VMWare Perl SDK on Debian 9

    PD_VMWare Lurker

      Dear All

       

      I try to install VMWare Perl SDK 5.5 and I also tried 6.5 on Debian9 so I'm able to monitor it over Nagios.

       

      But the installation always fails with:

      Openssl-devel is not installed on the system.

      openssl-devel 0.9.7 is required for encrypted connections.

      Please install openssl-devel version 0.9.7 or greater.

       

      e2fsprogs is not installed on the system

       

      e2fsprogs 1.38 is required for UUID.

      Please install e2fsprogs 1.38 or greater.

       

      I googled it but couldn't find a solution. First of all I can't find openssl-devel anywhere to install and second when I do apt-get install e2fsprogs, I get the message that I have already have the newest one installed.

      e2fsprogs is already the newest version (1.43.4-2).

       

      Any idea what how I can make it work?

          Hello,

           

          I've running the perl SDK on debian 9. Maybe the following output of dpkg can help you:

           

          root@vmware-mgt01vp:~# cat /etc/debian_version 
          9.4
