I've been talking with Cisco

Have been talking with Cisco's support about these issues, and it doesn't look like there's going to be an official fix for a few months. They say they're struggling to keep up with us.

I'm running Fedora Core 6. To get the module to compile/install, I had to either hand-edit or apply andrewes' patch. Unfortunately, that doesn't give me a working client:

# /etc/rc.d/init.d/vpnclient_init start
Starting /opt/cisco-vpnclient/bin/vpnclient: insmod: error inserting '/lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2849.fc6/CiscoVPN/cisco_ipsec.ko': -1 Invalid module format
Failed (insmod)

Oh, I did run the vpn_uninstall AND I manually deleted the old module (which their script doesn't do).

Have had same results with the 2.6.20-1.2933.fc6 kernel.

My Penguin is (from on Debian etch. I had no problem with andrew's patch.

However, when I was working with my other penguin, 2.6.18.?? (I forgot..) Debian Sarge, I had similar problem. It turned out to be kernel source path. Without a symlink to my real kernel path from /usr/src/linux, something went wrong and resulted in "invalid module format" If I remember correct, problem was Makefile with KERNEL_PATH. Apology for somewhat unclear info, everything is on my memory and that penguin is not around me at this moment.

Happy Penguins!
