Live testing system

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

Building strongSwan

===
We have changed the buid system to autotools for the 4.x releases. There is a growing list of [[Autoconf|autoconf options]] [wiki:Autoconf autoconf options] available:

** [[Autoconf|


* [wiki:Autoconf
Autoconf options for 42 releases]]
** [[Autoconf41|Autoconf
4.2 releases]
* [wiki:Autoconf41 Autoconf
options for 41 releases]] 4.1 releases]

The build procedure is as with any autotools project:
<pre>
{{{
wget http://download.strongswan.org/strongswan-4.x.tar.bz2
tar jxvf strongswan-4.x.tar.bz2; cd strongswan-4.x
./configure --<your-options>
make
sudo make install
</pre> }}}
