Mender-client with openssl-3.0

I am trying to build for kirkstone, which pulls in openssl-3.0. When trying to build the mender-client recipe, the build fails with the following error:

| vendor/ could not determine kind of name for C.FIPS_mode_set

This appears to be due to the FIPS_mode_set API being removed, as mentioned in the OpenSSL 3.0 Migration Guide:

I tried the 3.2.x branch, but it fails in the same way.

Hi @zach-welch-aquabyte!

This is being worked on already as part of supporting kirkstone. I will prepare a workaround to unblock you, but please note that it will not be production ready. Hopefully done by EOB today.

Hi @zach-welch-aquabyte!

This took a bit longer than expected, but there is a version of meta-mender at that you should be able to build. Please let me know if thats “good enough” for you to continue on the road to kirkstone.


Hi @TheYoctoJester , there seem some incorrect on these 2.

SRC_URI = “git://;protocol=https;branch=for-kirkstone-3.1.0”

SRCREV = “087a6d0831454c1d50351c52788f138c453d2f6bt”

I currently encountering fetch error

i tried modify these 2 to below


SRC_URI = “git://;protocol=https;branch=for-kirkstone”

SRCREV = “d252ca7ff4e91df2c303258e0c45a501d7e552c8”

however i still encountering fetch error, do you have any thought?

fixed the revision issue, now seeing this. Will continue debug tmr. Thanks for the fork branch.

When will mender-client compile issue be resolved in meta-mender, master-next branch Commits · mendersoftware/meta-mender · GitHub.
Any tentative date is planned ?

I tried mentioned [GitHub - TheYoctoJester/meta-mender at for-kirkstone] by correcting SRCREV in
-SRCREV = “087a6d0831454c1d50351c52788f138c453d2f6bt”
+SRCREV = “087a6d0831454c1d50351c52788f138c453d2f6b”

It further giving compile error:
| go: Get “”: dial tcp: lookup Temporary failure in name resolution
| make: *** [Makefile:82: build] Error 1
| ERROR: oe_runmake failed

Any suggestion to resolve this ?

Preeti Sachan

After removing the spurious trailing t in SRCREV, I am seeing the same name resolution failure. However, I was already seeing a similar error in an entirely unrelated recipe with a different dependency, so this likely reflects a broader issue that might not be entirely the fault of the mender recipe. Still, my initial searching has not turned up an obvious solution, so I too would enjoy suggestions for resolving this latest issue.

Hi all, I intentionally referred to the for-kirkstone-3.1 branch, as that is the one that I worked on. for-kirkstone in my private repo is known broken.

We don’t have an official tentative date for kirkstone support yet, but it is actively being worked on and hopefully ready for testing soon.


@TheYoctoJester ,

We are blocked to Kirsktone build release as mender-client is not yet fixed on GitHub - mendersoftware/meta-mender at master-next.

Any plan to fix mender-client on meta-mender, master-next/kirkstone branch before 30 April 2022 ?

Hi @Preeti,

we are actively working on it and hopefully I can get a buildable state online today or tomorrow. Will ping you once it is ready.


Hi @Preeti,

the current master-next branch on should give you a buildable state. Let me know if you encounter more problems.



It has been 2 months. Still master-next branch GitHub - mendersoftware/meta-mender at master-next is broken and giving compile error for mender-client.
When is it expected to fix in master-next branch. When will be kirkstone branch available ?

Hey @Preeti, see this reply.
