hey guys, i'd like to know if there's any liquid metal users out there are having the same problem as me with openvpn. currently i'm using vache's Metalounay 1.2 rom (i couldnt get my wireless to detect any access points using 1.2.1, but thats a different story)

i'm trying to connect to my vpn using my acer liquid metal using "openvpn setting" app that i've downloaded from the official market, i got the openvpn binaries installed without a problem using "openvpn installer" app which i also got from the market but i cant seem to connect to my vpn. i did a little bit of searching and found that there's a problem with tun.ko file

i've tried insmod my tun.ko which i've downloaded at http://goo.gl/6EXs9 but it only gives me "Exec format error" and my "dmesg | grep tun" shows the following:

tun: version magic '2.6.32.9-27220-g328f560 preempt mod_unload ARMv7 ' should be '2.6.29-perf preempt mod_unload ARMv7 '

by the way i've faced this error before using acer's official rom..anyone facing the same problem? or better yet, anyone has a solution?

thanks in advance :(

Tun is already included in the kernel. (if you're using Metalounay)

Btw, i compil it as a module, you can download it here :

i've tried using "openvpn setting" app to connect to my vpn, and i succeeded in connecting but the problem is my phone is not routing my internet connection through the vpn.. if anyone has managed to use openvpn on their acer liquid metal, mind sharing with me on how to route my internet connection through vpn?

**edited

it seems that using official roms also gives me the same routing problem..i can connect to the vpn without any problem but my internet connection still does not route through the vpn :(
