/usr/lib/openswan/setup is an invalid symlink to /etc/rc.d/ipsec. it's causing some programs that use "ipsec setup" to fail.

here's a patch:

An update is avable from october 21th (2.6.42). Can you update it ?

Please separate build commands from package() and put them in build()

I am trying to add a connection to the ipsec after doing all the configuration in the but I keep getting this message:

connect(pluto_ctl) failed: No such file or directory

If it's looking in the /var/run/pluto it's just an empty directory. What should I do? I can't find any documentation on this anywhere

@caspian Just refer to the README file in the openswan source.

Can anybody please tell me how to enable KLIPS support? I couldn't find any arch related documentation regarding this...

Send a mail to aur-general mailing list, asking them to merge this package with openswan.

@gtmanfred Any benefit of doing so? I mean the ipsec startup script is provided by upstream, so why not using it, easier to maintain.

gtmanfred commented on 2013-06-16 05:06

better systemd service that doesn't require using the old rc.d file from /usr/lib/systemd/scripts

xjpvictor commented on 2013-06-14 16:17

rc.d scripts removed.

@dreur Updated with python2 although I believe upstream should do something to solve it.
