I have a recent release of RedHat Linux up and running
on a Pentium 3, and have configured and used the
ancient Racoon that came with my Redhat installation. I
want to use install the latest version of Racoon.
Now I have downloaded ipsec-tools-0.3.2.tar.gz from
SourceForge to my Linux system. I know how to extract
the files therein, but I do not know how to build the
executable. I am an experienced software developer,
but not on Linux or Unix. I know almost nothing about
Make, makefiles, or the Linux compilers. I have installed
RedHat's "Development Tools" and "Kernel Development"
1. Where should I extract the files to?
2. How do I build?
a. Is there a makefile in the download to build just
racoon on and for Linux?
b. If so, what is the command line or commands to
invoke the make file and compile and build the
3. Can I download a recent version of the Racoon
executable that will run as-is on RedHat Linux?
