I've been having trouble with this version (2.6.49) failing to re-key. Connects ok initially but then the tunnel fails when the keylife expires.
xelerance has released a version. I'm now running that and the tunnel seems stable.
You might want to update the package to the new version.

Note that the package cannot install to the /run directory. Remove the entire $pkgdir/var directory and add the following two lines to the [Service] section of the openswan.service file:


Also, the usr/share/man/man3 directory is empty, remove it in package()

Note that the update to 2.6.49 commit is still stuck at 2.6.47.

options=(!makeflags) should be added to the makefile, since setting -j n is very common.

Please revert

Notice from the website:
"If you have downloaded version 2.6.45 or 2.6.44, please revert to version, as 2.6.44 and 2.6.45 have been found to be unstable in certain environments. We are working on a fix."

I had to add "-UNSTABLE" to the pkgver call in order to get this to build properly.

Nice catch BombStrike
I was using -j8, using anything lower than 8 fixes the issue.

Had set MAKEFLAGS="-j8" in /etc/makepkg.conf because 'nproc' returned 8 on my laptop ;-)

For those hitting the "fatal error: No such file or directory" error.
Seems like the issue comes from parallel builds on fast CPUs, my guess is that in some rare cases make tries to compile the lexer before bison is done generating it.
Just setting "options=(!makeflags)" in the PKGBUILD should help with those cases.
