Hi, merry Christmas to you all. I want to know how to resolve the linker problem:

cannot find -lcrypto

You need to have libcrypto installed. This usually comes installed with
OpenSSL. How to install OpenSSL depends on which platform you're running.

I know this is an old thread but I encountered the same error again, so I am going to give an answer.

On an Ubuntu system, install libssl-dev. That will solve both -lcrypto and -lssl.
