    VPN for Slackware 13


    Hi Everyone

    Hope you can help me.

    I am just installed Slackware 13.1, and everything works fine, but I want to install vpn (vpnclient-linux) but have the following errors:

    Making module
    make -C /usr/src/linux SUBDIRS=/root/Downloads/vpnclient/vpnclient modules
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.33.4'
    CC [M] /root/Downloads/vpnclient/vpnclient/linuxcniapi.o

    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.33.4'
    make: *** [default] Error 2
    Failed to make module "cisco_ipsec.ko".


    I have been searching it on google, and everything points out that I need the kernel source or something like that, but I dont know how to know that.

    Does anybody know how can I solve this? Or any help with the vpn?

    Best Regards and Thanks in advance!!

    Hi,

    I don't know what VPN client you are using, or what version, but if you got it here then the bad news is that it will fail to install on any kernel version 2.6.31and above.
    Can you post here where you got the client and which version it is?

    If you did a full install, you already have it... located in /usr/src/linux-2.6.33.4

    Hi Freston

    The version I am trying to install is vpnclient-linux-x86_64-4.8.01.0640-k9 and downloaded from tuxx-home.at/archives/2007/09/24/T15_26_49

    And yes, I did a full install of Slackware, and I have the /usr/src/linux-2.6.33.4 directory.

    But, with uname -r displays: 2.6.33.4-smp, I mean, It should not be: /usr/src/linux-2.6.33.4-smp???

    Thanks in advance

    Maybe this: OpenVPN - Open Source VPN

    Otherwise you'd have to downgrade the kernel a couple of points.
