I have a problem with my Fedora 8 installation. It looks that wget doesn't know how to verify SSL certificates any more. It's strange because I have another Fedora 8 box which I believe has the same configuration and it works!
How can I make it work without using "`--no-check-certificate" switch?
This is a sample output:
wget https://www.google.com --2011-09-23 00:11:13-- https://www.google.com/ Resolving www.google.com... 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199, ... Connecting to www.google.com|188.8.131.52|:443... connected. ERROR: cannot verify www.google.com's certificate, issued by `/C=ZA/O=Thawte Consulting (Pty) Ltd./CN=Thawte SGC CA': Unable to locally verify the issuer's authority. To connect to www.google.com insecurely, use `--no-check-certificate'. Unable to establish SSL connection.
I have this file /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt file and when I run wget with --ca-certificate switch pointing to this file everything goes fine. Where should this file be placed so that I don't need to use the switch?
BTW: curl and links work fine, but lynx also complains: "SSL error:unable to get local issuer certificate" so this is not only wget's issue...
