Hi Paul,

I recently had another go at installing openswan on the same machine as 
before (redhat 8.0 with stock kernel 2.4.18)

During "make module", I now get:
linux/moduleparam.h: No such file or directory
/usr/src/openswan-2.4.12/linux/net/ipsec/ipsec_proc.c:627:33: warning: 
pasting "__module_parm_" and ""natt_available"" does not give a valid 
preprocessing token
/usr/src/openswan-2.4.12/linux/net/ipsec/ipsec_proc.c:627: parse error 
before string constant
make[2]: *** [ipsec_proc.o] Error 1

moduleparam.h does not exist in my kernel source, hence the first error 
at line 30. The ifdef around this line did not prevent it from being 
I commented both line 30 and line 627, and then it compiled fine (as I 
said before I do not need nat-t, so I figured I can do without the 
module parameter)
