It doesn't support systemd yet.

Build correctly. Need test on the road.

Conflicts with 'ipsec-tools' (file '/etc/rc.d/ipsec'). If openswan's '/etc/rc.d/ipsec' gets renamed, also edit /etc/rc.d/openswan ('openswan.rc.d' in the source tarball) accordingly.

New pkgbuild for version 2.6.38

This version has included a patch to allow android ICS connection which is awesome.

pay attention to your comments plz, md5sum is bad though download url worked for me.

today on a freshly installed server box (kernel 3.2.8) the compilation did fail unless the package gnupg2 was also installed

The md5 is wrong, it should be e5c948555088df06cfadcfbe6c13adfe
Download url is not working.
Package flex is needed.

If that is the case, please add a makedepends=('docbook-xsl') line. (Tested with this modification; builds fine.)

@cambid: Are you active?
This package hasn't been updated in over a year,
and people want to update it.
I'll give you a few days to answer, and if I don't hear anything, I'll orphan

I've just managed to build this package. There are quire a few errors like the one listed by jintian. Having fixed them it builds and version 2.6.32 works with NETKEY on linux version 3.1.9-2-ARCH. By works I mean it connects to an existing system (also openswan, but a different version/platform) using x509 certs.
The fixes are 'lint' issues in openswan so I need to push it back there.
