Building OpenVPN RPM's from the Tar file

To Build The rpm for OpenVPN first you will need.

yum -y install rpm-build openssl openssl-devel lzo lzo-devel pam pam-devel device-mapper device-mapper-devel \
openssl openssl-devel pkcs11-helper-devel

Next as download the OpenVPN tar.gz file from. http://openvpn.net/download.html and place it in your home directory.

cd /home/matt
wget http://openvpn.net/release/openvpn-2.1_rc7.tar.gz
rpmbuild -tb openvpn-2.1_rc7.tar.gz
mv /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/*/openvpn*rpm .

When your done building the rpm it should be stored at /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/ so... your done.


My Prebuild OpenVPN RPM's are:

Building OpenVPN RPM's from SVN Source

To Build The rpm for OpenVPN first you will need.

yum -y install rpm-build openssl openssl-devel lzo lzo-devel pam pam-devel autoconf subversion

Then to build them run.

cd /tmp/svn
rm -rf openvp*
svn co http://svn.openvpn.net/projects/openvpn/trunk/openvpn/
cd openvpn
autoreconf -i -v
./configure
make
cp openvpn.spec ..
cd /tmp/svn
mv openvpn openvpn-`grep Version: /tmp/svn/openvpn.spec |awk '{ print $2 }'`
tar -czf /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/openvpn-`grep Version: /tmp/svn/openvpn.spec |awk '{ print $2 }'`.tar.gz  openvpn-`grep Version: /tmp/svn/openvpn.spec |awk '{ print $2 }'`
rpmbuild -ta /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/openvpn-`grep Version: /tmp/svn/openvpn.spec |awk '{ print $2 }'`.tar.gz

The above script will install from the current release trunk. If you would like to install a different version look at http://svn.openvpn.net/projects/openvpn/branches/ for more versions.
