The OpenVPN ipkg is a clean installation as the clipboard below proves. The Palm Pre's Linux OS is compiled with the /dev/tun driver built in, so you can ignore the module dependency warning.

The OpenVPN IRC channel ##OpenVPN exists on the same Freenode server #WebOS-Internals is located on. Please stop either channel with questions after visiting [1]

OpenVPN is deployed quickly and easily. The website and source installations contain scripts that can make OpenVPN connect to your home or work when WiFi is activated. oc80z
