To be fair, it wouldn't be that hard to build an SSL server that was
The black-box SSL packages that IBM ships are delivered as RPMs, and
it was just a lot less effort to build on a version of CentOS that
directly supported them than to mess around with it for 5.3.
To make matters worse, the fixes to it that have been released since
5.3 are 64-bit only, which is sort of a pain since the SSL server I
put together for 5.3 was Centos-4.4-31-bit-based. I haven't had the
time to update to a 64-bit build.
I have confirmed that z/VM 5.4.0 no longer requires a virtual Linux
to run the SSL server (SSLSERV virtual machine).
The SSL server under z/VM 5.4.0 runs under CMS, with some help from
Byte File System and OpenExtensions.
