/dev/tun not working after a kernel upgrade
I just upgraded to kernel 2.6.15 on slackware 11.0 and now after I try running openvpn I get a:
Sat Feb 24 23:18:33 2007 Note: Cannot open TUN/TAP dev /dev/net/tun: No such device (errno=19)
Sat Feb 24 23:18:33 2007 Note: Attempting fallback to kernel 2.2 TUN/TAP interface
Sat Feb 24 23:18:33 2007 Cannot allocate TUN/TAP dev dynamically
Sat Feb 24 23:18:33 2007 Exiting
Here's my kernel config file where tunnelling is specified
Also, I don't have a tun directory in /dev. So I created one using mkdir and then did a mknod /dev/net/tun c 10 200 ,
but that doesn't work either.
Where should I start looking next.
Any help is gladly appreciated
