Description Johannes Jost Meixner freebsd_committer 2020-02-29 11:31:04 UTC
Linux emulation in ports seems to ship without the ca-certificates RPM, which makes packages like cURL painful to use with SSL-enabled websites.

Please consider adding the ca-certificates RPM to the portstree, preferably into the base package.

<jell48> finally got the traces out with "truss chroot /compat/linux  curl https://google.com 2>&1". almost all of the files are found, except for "linux_open("/proc/sys/crypto/fips_enabled",0x0,0666) ERR#-2 'No such file or directory'". not sure how relevant is that crypto for curl to function (or is that a real cause)?

Recent versions of OpenSSL and other SSL libraries on Linux check for a kernel/userland setup that operates in a FIPS certified mode, which whether or not it is used, it includes a sysctl visible under /proc/sys/crypto/fips_enabled.
When the system is not in this mode, /proc/sys/crypto/fips_enabled should have a content of ASCII 0 (for false), which it should always be under emulation since we don't do FIPS certified crypto under linux emulation.

(In reply to Byron Grobe from comment #1)
From further discussion in #freebsd, it appears the proper location to do this would be in linprocfs.
Comment 3 Edward Tomasz Napierala freebsd_committer 2022-01-16 07:41:45 UTC
I'm not sure if the /proc file is the problem here.  In strace output, I can see:

stat("/etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt", 0x7fffffffb8c0) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

Providing this file - eg by copying from FreeBSD's /usr/local/share/certs/ca-root-nss.crt - makes Linux curl work.
