Hi all,

I think i really did my best but even after having read so (too) much of
the mailing list, i finish posting here :)

To sum up quickly :

OS running strongswan : debian 6.0.3

I installed strongswan this way:

apt-get install build-essential fakeroot dpkg-dev devscripts

apt-get source strongswan

apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev

apt-get build-dep strongswan

vi strongswan-4.4.1/debian/rules


CONFIGUREARGS := --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var \

                --libexecdir=/usr/lib \

                --enable-ldap --enable-curl \

                --with-capabilities=libcap \

                --enable-smartcard \

                --with-default-pkcs11=/usr/lib/opensc-pkcs11.so \

                --enable-mediation --enable-medsrv --enable-medcli \

                --enable-openssl --enable-agent \

                --enable-eap-radius --enable-eap-identity --enable-eap-md5 \

                --enable-eap-gtc --enable-eap-aka --enable-eap-mschapv2 \

                --enable-sql --enable-integrity-test \

                --enable-nm --enable-ha --enable-dhcp --enable-farp \

                --enable-test-vectors \



dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -uc -b

Then installed everything with :

dpkg -i *.deb

Results :

*dpkg -l | grep strong*
