= strongSwan Installation Documentation =

== Live testing system ==
We have built a [wiki:OpenWRTDemo small test system] to run strongSwan without installation or configuration. It is based on a UML kernel, two small OpenWRT images and should run on any x86 Linux system out of the box.

== Distribution packages ==

There are currently packages for:
* [http://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=strongswan&searchon=names&suite=all&section=all Debian]
* [http://packages.ubuntu.com/cgi-bin/search_packages.pl?searchon=names&version=all&exact=1&keywords=strongswan Ubuntu]
* [http://software.opensuse.org/search?p=1&q=strongswan openSUSE]
* [http://packages.gentoo.org/package/net-misc/strongswan [http://packages.gentoo.org/search/?sstring=strongswan Gentoo]

== Compile yourself ==

=== Kernel requirements ===
strongSwan should run on most distros' kernels. If you build your own kernel, include [wiki:KernelModules the required modules].

=== Building strongSwan ===
We have changed the buid system to autotools for the 4.x releases. There is a growing [wiki:Autoconf list of autoconf options] available. The build procedure is as with any autotools project:
{{{
wget http://download.strongswan.org/strongswan-your-version.tar.bz2
tar jxvf strongswan-your-version.tar.bz2; cd strongswan-your-version
./configure --your-options
make
sudo make install
}}}
