Kernel TUN modules
 
Hi
I am working on Debian (wheezy) through SSH. The company I rent the virtual machine from have useless support and will not respond to my request to enable TUN/TAP support, so I am trying to do it myself.
Code:

modprobe tun
returns
Code:

libkmod: ERROR ../libkmod/libkmod.c:505 kmod_lookup_alias_from_builtin_file: could not open builtin file '/lib/modules/2.6.32-042stab075.2/modules.builtin.bin'
FATAL: Module tun not found

I checked and the file /lib/modules/2.6.32-042stab075.2/modules.builtin.bin does in fact exist. But perhaps that is not relevant. How can I go about installing my own kernel tun modules?

Thank you

You'd probably have to build your own node farm (which is easier than you think thanks to raspberry pi) in order to hack your kernel.
Most node farmers are not going to put that capability in the hands of their tenants, at least in my limited experience. You might want to start your search for answers there.
