Installing libssl

TruffleRuby provides the openssl module but not the native libssl system library that the module uses. TruffleRuby supports both versions 1.0.2 and 1.1.0.

If you experience openssl-related errors, it might help to recompile the openssl module by running lib/truffle/ This is done automatically by Ruby managers, and mentioned in the post-install message when installing TruffleRuby via gu install in GraalVM.

RedHat-based: Fedora, Oracle Linux, etc #

sudo dnf install openssl-devel

Debian-based: Ubuntu, etc #

sudo apt-get install libssl-dev

macOS #

On macOS the system version is too old.


We recommend installing libssl via Homebrew.

brew install openssl


MacPorts should also work but is not actively tested.

sudo port install openssl
