Description Dave Sherman 2003-02-07 15:03:42 UTC
Description of problem: IPSec appears to be either missing or disabled in the latest kernel update (2.4.18-24.8.0). I can no longer create a VPN tunnel to my office, as the ipsec service is unable to start. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.4.18-24.8.0 How reproducible: [root@dedannshae root] # service ipsec start ipsec_setup: Starting FreeS/WAN IPsec 1.99... ipsec_setup: insmod: ipsec: no module by that name found ipsec_setup: modprobe: Can't locate module ipsec ipsec_setup: kernel appears to lack KLIPS ipsec_setup: OOPS, should have aborted! Broken shell! If I boot into the previous kernel, ipsec start fine and I have my VPN working. Steps to Reproduce: 1. See above. 2. 3. Actual results: See terminal output above. Expected results: Standard IPSec startup messages and VPN functionality. Additional info:

Red Hat Linux kernels haven't ever included IPSec support. We're looking at it for a future release, however past kernels have never included it.
Comment 2 Dave Sherman 2003-02-07 15:26:54 UTC
OK, then apparently the latest kernel broke the freeswan kernel module. My freeswan version is: freeswan-module-1.99_2.4.18_19.8.0-0 freeswan-1.99_2.4.18_19.8.0-0 Can this bug be moved over to the kernel module maintainer, or whoever takes care of this?
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2003-02-07 15:29:59 UTC
we don't ship those freeswan modules... You need to recompile them for the latest kernel to work. if you have a .src.rpm somewhere of them you can do that by rpmbuild --rebuild --target i686 <foo>.src.rpm
Comment 4 Dave Sherman 2003-02-07 15:34:22 UTC
Ah. OK, thanks for the help. I'll check freeswan.org first, as I originally got binary rpms from there (I think - I had thought they came with RH 8.0, but apparently not :-) ).

Closing, not a RH bug.
