Linux install openssl/squashfs

I installed SUSE Enterprise 11 just so I can extract drivers from an ISO file using special commands from the ISO itself. The pre-requisites are openssl and squashfs-tools to be installed which I'm having issues with since I never installed anything on linux before. Both are copied to my desktop openssl 1.02 and squashfs-tools-4.3-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz and txz.

Here's an error I get without the pre-reqs:
~/Desktop/ucs-c220-huu-3.0.4l/GETFW> ./getfw -s /home/myname/Desktop/ucs-c220-huu-3.0.4l.iso -d /tmp/
Error: Extraction Failed

I also get an error installing openssl when at the "make" line
  tar -xvzf openssl-1.0.1g.tar.gz
  cd openssl-1.0.1g
  ./config --prefix=/usr/
  make
  sudo make install

Makefile:287: recipe for target 'build_crypto' failed
make: *** [build_crypto] Error 1
 
And not sure how to install squash either.

Thanks in advance

Tip: Install the packages rather than building from source...

If you must build from source, this is a long process.

Refer to http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/stable/chapter06/openssl.html to build openssl.

Refer to https://github.com/plougher/squashfs-tools to build mksquashfs (used to unsquash squashfs .iso files).

You're welcome!

Yep. Go the easy way... Installing packages is far easier than building from source.
