I'm having problem starting openvpn after recent upgrade.

When I try to start it I get a normal respond:
Code:
openvpn.client_clinic_atom start
 * Starting openvpn.client_clinic_atom ...                [ ok ]
 * WARNING: openvpn.client_clinic_atom has started, but is inactive

but ifconfig is not showing this connection in addition it looks strange, not as it used to:

Code:
ifconfig eth1: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
        inet 10.0.0.100  netmask 255.255.255.0  broadcast 10.0.0.255
        inet6 fe80::21b:21ff:feb8:27b6  prefixlen 64  scopeid 0x20<link>
        ether 00:1b:21:b8:27:b6  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)
        RX packets 16129  bytes 9087618 (8.6 MiB)
        RX errors 0  dropped 0  overruns 0  frame 0
        TX packets 15573  bytes 2667489 (2.5 MiB)
        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0
        device interrupt 16  memory 0xfddc0000-fdde0000

lo: flags=73<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING>  mtu 16436
        inet 127.0.0.1  netmask 255.0.0.0
        inet6 ::1  prefixlen 128  scopeid 0x10<host>
        loop  txqueuelen 0  (Local Loopback)
        RX packets 1218  bytes 1433926 (1.3 MiB)
        RX errors 0  dropped 0  overruns 0  frame 0
        TX packets 1218  bytes 1433926 (1.3 MiB)
        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0


What did changed? The "ifconfig" display looks different! It probably has something to do with openvpn not working.

Hello Joseph_sys,

We talked about this this kind of issue in this topic.

Actually, the lastest version of sys-apps/net-tools moved /sbin/ifconfig to /bin/ifconfig which kind of breaks openvpn. Then, few people found that re-emerging openvpn solved the issue :

Code:
emerge -v1 net-misc/openvpn



Good luck :]
