Hi I managed to get it built , but had to install the following from rpm.pbone.net in this order: (I don't have the fc5 disk, and could not find any repos for fc5 other than pbone)


Now is there a way to backup my current version of openswan, just incase this blows up?

Thx jason

Woah that's ancient!

The latest openswan version, 2.6.28 should support that.

download the tar.gz into /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES then do:

cd /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES
tar zxf openswan-2.6.28.tar.gz
cd openswan-2.6.28
rpmbuild -ba packaging/fedora/openswan.spec install the resulting binary rpm using: rpm -Uhv

If you use netkey, you are done. If you want klips, also do:
yum install kernel-devel
export KERNELSRC=/usr/src/kernels/pickyourkernelversion
make module module_install
and be sure to have "protostack=klips" in your ipsec.conf
