Hi All,
I need your help in getting clear about the openswan installation properly.

I used the following commands to compile from source openswan-2.4.10.tar.gz

tar zxvf openswan-2.4.10.tar.gz
cd openswan-2.4.10
make programs
make install

I have installed gmp and gmp-devel packages in my system.  My system running
with Linux SuSE 10.1

I got the following output. I think openwan is installed but not running by
seeing pluto is not running from the following output also IPsec Stack is
also not installed.
linux-susi:/mohamed/openswan-2.4.10 # ipsec verify
Checking your system to see if IPsec got installed and started correctly:
Version check and ipsec on-path                                   [OK]
Linux Openswan U2.4.10/K(no kernel code presently loaded)
Checking for IPsec support in kernel                              [FAILED]
