= 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:
* [ Debian]
* [ Ubuntu]
* [ openSUSE]
* [ [ 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:
tar jxvf strongswan-your-version.tar.bz2; cd strongswan-your-version
./configure --your-options
sudo make install
