The "devel()" requires/provides are automatically generated (by
evaluating the libraries linked to by the development libraries in a
development package) requires/provides which guarantee you won't get
link-time problems when building software (you'll run into this prolem
on every other rpm-based distribution, and probably most other binary
distributions, becuase it's simply not feasible to ensure this
manually). But, rpmdrake should be able to resolve this dependency for
you (if not you should really file a bug at http://qa.mandrakesoft.com,
please include your /etc/urpmi/urpmi.cfg file).

$ urpmq -p "devel(libcrypto)"
# urpmi "devel(libcrypto)"
doesn't install the package, you don't have the media to support this
package, you probably want to take a trip to http://easyurpmi.zarb.org
and add a "Main" medium.
Hint: the string inside the brackets is the name of the library itself,
so you could also find the package by searching by file (if your urpmi
media are setup to have the correct packages available).

But not the development packages ...
