Hello,

I found this error in my /var/log/messages and was hoping someone could help me figure out what it means and how to correct it. I have not had any luck at all searching around about this.

It happens when starting openvpn. tun.ko IS loaded at the time and openvpn starts and works despite the error. I suspect however that this error is what is causing the openvpn init script to say the service is started but inactive, even though it starts and operates as expected.

The error from /var/log/messages:
Code:

Jan 17 11:53:09 localhost /etc/init.d/openvpn[14511]: WARNING: openvpn has started, but is inactive
Jan 17 11:53:15 localhost NetworkManager[6742]: <warn> /sys/devices/virtual/net/tun0: couldn't determine device driver; ignoring...
Jan 17 11:53:16 localhost /etc/init.d/openvpn[14678]: status: inactive


The openvpn init script error that I suspect is being caused by this:
Code:

localhost root # /etc/init.d/openvpn start
 * Starting openvpn ...                                                                                                                [ ok ]
 * WARNING: openvpn has started, but is inactive


Ultimately I'm trying to correct this init script issue and this warning/error in /var/log/messages seems to be the only 'problem' remaining that I can find.
If someone could point me in the right direction that would be wonderful!
Thanks
