Thread: Looking for ca-certificates.crt file - where is it?

  1. #1

    Default Looking for ca-certificates.crt file - where is it?

    I'm working with two machines, one Leap 42.3 and the other is Tumbleweed. On both of them I wan to use the `offlineimap` package to download email for offline use and the `msmtp` package to send email.

    Both of these packages needs a ca-certificate to connect to the respective IMAP mail servers, in my case Gmail and Office365. On Tumbleweed I was able to find the ca-certificate crt file at /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt, but in OpenSUSE Leap 42.3 this file eludes me. Can someone point me in the right direction of where to find this file? Downloading all related ca-certificates-{mozilla,cacert} files doesn't seem to get me anywhere, and I can't find the file with yast.

    Does the file need to be generated? If I use update-ca-certificates, I only see a bunch of .pem files generated in /usr/share/pki/trust/, and I don't know if those are related.

    Any help towards appropriate documentation would be immensely grateful.

    I found the solution by retracing my steps and following the file on Tumbleweed - actually the file /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt was just a symlink to /var/lib/ca-certificates/ca-bundle.pem, which both OpenSUSE 42.3 and Tumbleweed had.

    There's a script that is supposed to automatically create those symlinks as needed.

    Looking on 42.3, the directory "/usr/share/doc/packages/ca-certificates" contains a README file with some of the details of how this all works.
