Has anyone had any success setting up a vpn client on the eeepc 900  
with kernel 2.6.26-1-686??
I tried using Cisco vpnclient 4.8, but it wouldn't build against the  
standard kernel header package 2.6.26-1-686 (I'm assuming I should be  
using the headers package from Debian, and not a special version for  
the eeepc install kernel ??). The error is : conflicting types for  

When I try to use vpnc 0.5.1, I get various errors: If it has been  
installed via apt-get it gives the error that it wasn't compiled with  
openssl support (yes, I do have openssl!). If I try to build it  
myself, and uncheck the relevant lines in the makefile to include  
openssl in the build, I get build errors as it can't find openssl/ 
x509.h or openssl/err.h. I can include full output if it's likely to  
help at all.

Has anyone else found this a problem? I know the cisco client is very  
picky about some kernels.
