OpenVPN module

Here you can post about the issues related to modifications performed manually (not through the kiosk wizard). Example: swapped kernel, added 3rd party modules or files.
Please describe in detail what has been changed and hopefully other kiosk user will be able to help.
Porteus team wont resolve bugs posted in this category as we support only modifications made by the kiosk wizard.

OpenVPN module

Post#1 by erots » 21 Jul 2015, 11:38

I have read all forum topics and have nothing found about OpenVPN.
Could someone help me to build OpenVPN module for Porteus Kiosk 3.4.0. I am trying to do my best, but the result of runing openvpn command (in my modified Porteus with OpenVPN module integrated) is:
/usr/sbin/openvpn: line 21: syntax error: unexpected word (expecting ")")
Any ideas?

you probably needs full bash package and this is where things start to be tricky.

moving to 'Users modification to the Kiosk ISO' section of the forum.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Ok, I have solved the problem with openvpn module, the next problem is that kiosk 3.18.14 kernel does not have tun.ko module therefore openvpn does not have network interface from where to make connection?
Is it possible to get tun.ko for 3.18.14-porteus-kiosk kernel somehow?
