klips are packaged in a seperate rpm. Forgive our current repository layout.
We're in the process of redoing it to make it yumable.

You will need to grab the appropriate openswan-klips-2.3.0-VERSION_1.i386.rpm
where VERSION is your kernel version. Currently we prebuild :


Or you can build your own klips module:
rpm -ihv openswan-2.3.0-1.src.rpm
rpmbuild -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/openswan.spec
rpm -ihv /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/openswan-klips-2.3.0-*.rpm

WARNING : klips based on a redhat kernel source for intel causes lock up!

Though these packages were made to get a wider testing range, please be
careful when using these. Avoid using them on remote machines for now until
we have confirmed these bugs are resolved or very uncommon for people.

We are currently also in the process of rebuilding and testing klips for
Suse. I will post a followup once I know more.
