I have compiled the library for ios. I have followed the step mentioned at the following address.


I am using 14.06.00 version. The sample in the following directory works fine.


But When I restart my mac machine and run the sample again it gives me following error.

library not found for -lssl

I have to recompile and follow all the step again. After that the sample works fine. What I am doing wrong?

I've had the exact same problem.

The samples or any other app using AllJoyn framework needs OPENSSL_ROOT set.

The documentation mentions

launchctl setenv OPENSSL_ROOT <path to openssl root>

When you followed the instructions you would have set OPENSSL_ROOT. When you restart your machine the OPENSSL_ROOT variable is not found and thus you get that error. After executing the above command you have to restart Xcode for it to pick up this variable

Rather than following all the steps the error in your case clearly points to openssl problem

Update If you are running Yosemite (10.10) it is slightly different

> launchctl setenv OPENSSL_ROOT /path/to/openssl/build
> sudo killall Finder
> sudo killall Dock
> open -a Xcode

Although the solution for 10.10 is not clean it should work until we find a cleaner way to do it.

Let me know if it does not fix your problem

Not sure what happened to my other post, but yes I'm running 10.10. This was indeed the problem. I didn't create the question, so I can't accept this answer, but I believe it is correct.

For Yosemite (10.10) > launchctl setenv OPENSSL_ROOT /path/to/openssl/build > sudo killall Finder > sudo killall Dock > open -a Xcode That should make Xcode pick up OPENSSL_ROOT

Does this method for 10.10 persist across reboots?

I haven' tested it. My best guess for now is that it does not.
