Best way of updating Openssl on Linux machine

view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I have a confusion to choose the best way for upgrading the OpenSSL on my Linux machine. 1*Through the yum Update.* # yum update I know this will update the entire packages. But If I want to specifically update OpenSSL Can I use # yum update OpenSSL 2. Through the commands $ openssl version $ wget http://www.openssl.org/source/openssl-1.0.0i.tar.gz $ tar xzvf openssl-1.0.0i.tar.gz $ cd openssl-1.0.0i $ make clean $ ./config --prefix=/usr/local --openssldir=/usr/local/openssl $ make $ make test $ make install Please suggest me the best approach. Thanks. (HowTos)
