Hi LevaZzz
You are running 5.x. Openvpn.tcz  has not yet been added to the 5.x repository.

Hi LevaZzz
If you want to try it, open the  Apps  utility and install:
iproute2.tcz
lzo.tcz
openssl-1.0.0.tcz
Then:
Code: [Select]
cd /etc/sysconfig/tcedir/optional
wget http://www.tinycorelinux.net/4.x/x86/tcz/openvpn.tcz
wget http://www.tinycorelinux.net/4.x/x86/tcz/openvpn.tcz.dep
wget http://www.tinycorelinux.net/4.x/x86/tcz/libpkcs11-helper.tcz
wget http://www.tinycorelinux.net/4.x/x86/tcz/libpkcs11-helper.tcz.dep
Open  openvpn.tcz.dep  and change  lzo2.tcz  to  lzo.tcz:
Code: [Select]
editor openvpn.tcz.depSave the file and then execute:
Code: [Select]
tce-load openvpn.tczAssuming I haven't left out any steps and  openvpn  is compatible you should be able to run it.
If you find it runs correctly under 5.x please report it here:

And don't forget to mention any extra steps required to get it to work, like modifying the dependency file.

Gratitude for sharing this information. Glad that the issue has been solved. I too have to buy a VPN service that supports android and windows as I want to use it with the PC and phone. Could you share the tech reviews about such VPN service?
