Ok, so I've migrated to systemd to see what the fuss is all about, and I don't dislike what I see. But I'm having problems with openvpn: I understand I have to systemctl enable openvpn@openvpn, where the second openvpn is due to my configuration being in openvpn.conf. That works, but only after I have modprobed tun by hand. Otherwise it fails. With openrc, tun was auto loaded. I think I can use /etc/modules-load.d/ to load the tun module at boot, but should't systemd load it when needed (i.e., when starting openvpn@whatever)?

Damn (i.e. córcholis :) ) , I was about to try systemd myself and I also use openvpn... I'm glad that you tried first :P Did you get to solve it?

I think the way is that you have your extra modules needed in, for example /etc/modules-load.d/tun.conf (so yes, you thought right :D).

> but should't systemd load it when needed (i.e., when starting openvpn@whatever)?
Does openrc load the tun module on demand or at boot? Anyway I don't believe kernel modules are, maybe you are confused with the on-demand service/socket/etc loading?

Yep, just load tun at boot (echo "tun" > /etc/modules-load.d/tun.conf). Not the most elegant solution but hey, it works.

hmmm... IDK, maybe the init.d/openvpn script modprobed tun. I can't check it now; I removed all traces of openrc in etc/init.d :D (after finding a replacement for the essential /etc/init.d/functions.sh).

Anyway, I think the openvpn@.service should take care of loading the tun module somehow.
