Hi! Not trying to sound pedantic here, but it’s kind of ironic not to be able to install the latest [ as of this writing, 3.1.7 ] Sailfish SDK on updated Linux systems with the latest OpenSSL, making it basically impossible to develop apps for Sailfish, a Linux variant…on Linux. I don’t think that Jolla wants to scare off potential app developers, who indirectly contribute to the system as a whole, who work exclusively on Linux (like me), because they are unable to even install the SDK.
My two advices would be:
First and foremost update the required OpenSSL version!
Maybe test the functionality of the SDK in non-Ubuntu Linux variants? I know it is impossible to test it on all Linux distros, it would be a waste of time anyway. But what about concentrating on the most popular ones? Debian-based, Arch-based, Red Hat-based? That would encourage people from all Linux sides to get to know Sailfish.
