Hi All,

I remember successfully setting up my VPN box (site-to-site) 2 years back on
CentOS machine. Now I am trying the same on Ubuntu installation  (9.0.4).
Following steps;
1- Fresh installation of ubuntu
Linux flexilogix.com 2.6.18-028stab068.9 #1 SMP Tue Mar 30 17:22:31 MSD 2010
i686 GNU/Linux

2- Install utilities for openswan source compilation on ubuntu
3- Compile and install openswan from source

cd /usr/src/openswan-2.#.#
    make programs

    make install

Once installation is succesfful; service start gives following response....

root at flexilogix:/usr/src/openswan-2.6.31# service ipsec start
ipsec_setup: Starting Openswan IPsec 2.6.31...
ipsec_setup: No KLIPS support found while requested, desperately falling
back to netkey
ipsec_setup: FATAL: Could not load
/lib/modules/2.6.18-028stab068.9/modules.dep: No such file or directory
ipsec_setup: Even NETKEY support is not there, aborting

Please suggest what should be done? Is this some shortcoming of Ubuntu
Kernel? How can I fix this and proceed further?
