Building openssl on F36 misses GLIBC_2.38

Is this because I’m building on F36 and I should be building this on something…newer? Or is this the Platform//23.08 glibc version that I’m battling?

This question is irrelevant and transpire a misunderstanding of what flatpak provides and how it works.

tl;dr the build is indenpendant of the host system.

Well, building a copy of OpenSSL wouldn’t be useful so long as there’s a way I can make sure I have a version of Python in the flatpak of my choosing. I don’t see flatpaks on flathub that provide this.

I want to find a way to bundle a version of python and a vitual environment (a series of pip packages) so I can run scripts on the host. What would you suggest I do to accomplish this?

I did that in the kodi flatpak at some time, as we needed to pin python to a certain version.

So you should be able to use the freedesktop runtime and just build and link against a python you provide.

@razzeee that is a helpful comment, thanks. My flatpak build does go further when I remove the openssl build module before python.
