I'm using SUSE 9.1. 
I had to make the following links in /usr/lib since the EPKOWA driver wanted 
an earlier versions  libcrypto.so.0.9.6 and libssl.so.0.9.6:
	ln -s libcrypto.so.0.9.7 libcrypto.so.0.9.6
	ln -s libssl.so.0.9.7 libssl.so.0.9.6

Also the following may help you even though its for SuSE.

Hope I read this link correctly.
