Newbie problems

Hi

Just took delivery of my Mac Mini today, first download was OpenCPN. No probs until I tried to install charts. US charts worked fine, but NZ (and Peru, just to check) failed.

Log has error "Error: Network error: Problem with the SSL CA cert (path? access rights?)"

I can download the URL in my browser (https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ch...NC_Catalog.xml) and even the zip file it contains (http://www.linz.govt.nz/sites/defaul...b/BSB_BASE.zip), so I suspect that it is not a network issue.

Any help will be appreciated!

Thanks
Michael

Re: Newbie problems

Michael...
Your Mac does not have the CA bundle (list of trusted root certificate authorities) available in a location where we look for it, which is the effect of changes Apple did in handling security in recent macOS versions. I will have a better fix for the next OpenCPN release, but for now, some manual work is needed to resolve it.
Open the Terminal application and do the following:
Code:
mkdir -p /usr/local/etc/openssl
security export -p -k /System/Library/Keychains/SystemRootCertificates.keychain -t certs -o /usr/local/etc/openssl/cert.pem

Re: Newbie problems

Thanks Pavel, your advice did the job!

I had to sudo the 2 commands, and then chmod the file to make it global readable.

Oh the sweet irony, I gave up on Ubuntu because I was tired of all these secret handshakes and wanted something that just worked out of the box......

Regards
Michael
