# Three workarounds
echo "USE_DNSSEC=false" >> Makefile.inc.local
echo "USE_SYSTEMD_WATCHDOG=false" >> Makefile.inc.local

programs/pluto/kernel_netlink.c swap these two lines. xfrm.h first

52 #include "linux/xfrm.h" /* local (if configured) or system copy */
51 #include "libreswan.h" /* before xfrm.h otherwise break on F22 */

Compiling libreswan 3.21 on Debian Wheezy

You need 3 workarounds to compile on Debian Wheezy. The workaround #1 is very specific to Wheezy (libc < 2.19 and kernel < 3.12). Later distributions fixed issues #1 and #2. #3 is because libunbound is too old.

conflict between netinet/in.h and linux/in6.h

It got worse by commit 07a01d3 to xfrm.in in libreswan. The issue has a long history. It is partly due to UAPI ABI out of sync and partly due to updating local copy of xfrm.h with commit 07a01d3 while supporting nic-offload for mellonex cards. We could have worked around 07a01d3, however, it was easy to keep xfrm.h in sync with kernel UAPI copy 4.12 which seemed to work in most cases(glibc 2.19+ kernel 3.12+); except Wheezy!

Package: libc6-dev
Source: eglibc
Version: 2.13-38+deb7u10

The local copy
programs/pluto/linux-copy/linux/xfrm.h is updated linux kernel 4.12

Workaround : remove the following line from

programs/pluto/linux-copy/linux/xfrm.h

#include <linux/in6.h>

Details about the conflict

glibc 2.19+

https://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=15850 If you have glibc 2.19+ you may have flip the two lines in programs/pluto/kernel_netlink.c

52 #include "linux/xfrm.h" /* local (if configured) or system copy */
51 #include "libreswan.h" /* before xfrm.h otherwise break on F22 */
Why not commit this

Well if we commit this F22 will break. Which is the ancient test VMs upstream developers use. So do not commit this change.

How does this work on RHEL/CentOS 7.3 or even 6.8

Most likely they have backports to fix this. 7.3 has kernel 3.10 and glibc 2.17


With kernel 3.12 and libc-dev 2.19+ =

Kernel made more efforts fix this issue https://github.com/torvalds/linux/commit/cfd280c91253cc28e4919e349fa7a813b63e71e8

NOTE: Fedora 22 keep the order in kernel_netlink.c

Can't link with libsystemd

This error is with. This is not new in 3.21, an old one.

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lsystemd 
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
 
 Package: libsystemd-daemon-dev
 Source: systemd
 Version: 44-11+deb7u5

Workaround: USE_SYSTEMD_WATCHDOG=false

in libreswan src directory

echo "USE_SYSTEMD_WATCHDOG=false" >> Makefile.inc.local

FYI: debian stretch seems to have proper libsystemd-dev

Wheezy libunbound2 (1.4.17) do not support libevent

(NOTE: this is not re-compiling issue, you need > 1.5x)

/home/build/libreswan/lib/libswan/unbound.c:187: undefined reference to
`ub_ctx_create_event'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

apt-cache show libunbound2
Package: libunbound2
Source: unbound
Version: 1.4.17-3+deb7u2

Workaround : USE_DNSSEC=false

echo "USE_DNSSEC=false" >> Makefile.inc.local

If you have libunbound version less than 1.5.0 disable is the only way. libunbound2 1.5.0 above should be compiled with --with-libevent --enable-event-api

NOTE: to compile libunbound2 + libevent on Wheezy your best bet is upstream. unbound-1.6.0 from jessie-backports has unmet dependencies on Wheeezy. Strech package is not dowards compaitable.

Fixed in.h/in6.h conflict in #master

If you have have master with commit a7d8a0bbb9cff171b9d0ba5ee36293f92a1b1eba on Debian Wheezy disable NIC Offload and use system's xfrm.h. Then you can compile.

nic-offload disable commit to v3.21
