Linux Kernel requirements

strongSwan should run on most distros' kernels. If you build your own kernel, include the required modules.

The build procedure is as with any autotools project:

 tar jxvf strongswan-4.x.x.tar.bz2; cd strongswan-4.x.x
 ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --<your-options>
 sudo make install
