Comment 2 Steve Grubb 2008-06-23 20:52:35 UTC
A new version of openswan has been pushed out to F-9. Does this problem still
exist on the new version?

Comment 3 Avesh Agarwal 2008-10-08 21:43:12 UTC
I need some more information regarding this as follows:

1) do you still experience the problem?

Assuming yes to the previous one

2. does your kernel's config file in /boo/config-2.6 have "CONFIG_NET_KEY=m"?

If yes, then could you please check whether your /etc/ipsec.conf has "protostack=netkey"?  

If no, then it may be possible that your kernel is not compiled for ipsec support.

Moreover, the insmod errors just show that you dont have padlock driver (and associated harware for aes acceleration).

Comment 4 Paul Wouters 2008-10-14 10:06:58 UTC
if you have the klips module (non-fedora kernel module) then you need to add protostack=klips. You can also preload ipsec.ko before starting openswan to trigger selecting klips, but then you cannot have protostack=netkey.

Comment 5 Paul Wouters 2009-04-02 16:12:07 UTC
these warnings are gone in later versions of openswan anyway. 2.6.09 is really old

Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2009-06-10 01:37:05 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 15:01:05 UTC
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
