You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
The currently available (test) version, openvpn-2.2.0 is not built with
iproute2 support. This makes openvpn connections fail if the openvpn server
supports IPv6 over TUN (2.3-alpha release) and pushes out IPv6 addresses. It
fails when setting up IPv6 addresses via /sbin/ifconfig.
I suggest building openvpn with ./configure --enable-iproute2 instead of the
While I'm at it, --enable-pthread is also bogus. That's a NOP, if you read
syshead.h, you'll see that it is forced to be disabled there. And if you
remove that blocker, OpenVPN still won't compile cleanly. The whole threading
code is ripped out before the version 2.2 was released. See git commit
7aa6c12a4424d00ea  for more info.
I am no longer active as maintainer for openvpn on Maemo: you're welcome to fix
it yourself, since I cannot test your case anyway.
