I am experimenting with 
https://github.com/openssl/openssl/archive/refs/heads/master.zip openssl 
3.1.0 Source Distribution archive, I built it into a local virtual 
machine environment (folder). System is debian 11.3 (Bullseye), Local 
Personal Computer.

This code works:

This code gives error:
error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.3: cannot open shared 
object file: No such file or directory

I am trying to learn (or more precisley just trying to get it working 
without errors) so please excuse my ignorance that may be apparent in 
this paragraph. My research on internet shows that error is common and 
is caused by diffrent systems having diffrent libraries or paths to 
library. So a solution is to define the correct library and correct path 
to it. But this is suposed to be a local virtual machine environment, 
Can I put the correct library into the local virtual machine (folder) so 
the software will not search for it throughout the global system? Or is 
there a general (all system) fix for this? Another problem is Python 
3.10.6 requires a OpenSSL 1.1.1 or newer. Can I link my Python virtual 
machine to the openssl virtual machine? Your comments are appreciated.
