enabling ipsec support in kernel
I am using FC1 with kernel version 2.4.22-1.2149.nptl
I am trying configuring VPNs through IPSec.
I am getting the following error while giving the ipsec verify command
bash]# ipsec veriy
Checking for IPsec support in kernel [FAILED]
Starting IPsec: Starting Openswan IPsec 2.1.5...
insmod: ipsec: no module by that name found
modprobe: Can't locate module af_key
modprobe: kernel appears to lack KLIPS
Can't locate module ipsec
I have tried the kernel compilation, But i didn't find any option regarding ipsec
(GRE, l2tp are there).
Is ipsec support there in this kernel or not.
Please help me in enabling ipsec module support.

I don't know what was compiled into FC1, but KLIPS is in FC3,4,5 by default.
You enable KLIPS/ipsec you need to "make xconfig" and select "networking" on the left pane. On the right pane select "networking support/networking options".
Under this you should see &select
+ IPSEC user configuration interface
+ PF_KEY Sockets
+ IP:AH transformation
+ IP:ESP transformation
+ IP:IPComp transformation
+ IP:Tunnel transformation
I doubt it's necessary but you should check "The IPv6 Protocol" and all the minor items under it.
