[Openswan Users] Openswan Installation: Help

In most modern kernels NETKEY is already installed, in your case it seems this isn't so.
Use the following commands to install the KLIPS module.
This is the easiest way to get openswan running without any kernel changes.
And it's documented in the README and INSTALL files with the commands you already used.
First you'll need your kernel source which matches your kernel installed.
make KERNELSRC=/usr/src/linux-`uname -r` module
make KERNELSRC=/usr/src/linux-`uname -r` minstall
Afterwards you need to start the ipsec service.

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]
Checking for RSA private key (/etc/ipsec.secrets)               [DISABLED]
  ipsec showhostkey: file `/etc/ipsec.secrets' does not exist 
Checking that pluto is running                                      [FAILED]

linux-susi:/mohamed/openswan-2.4.10 #

Any patch for KLIPS or NETKEY should I add ?

Expecting reply from any one of you pl...
Thanks & Regards,
