[meta-xilinx] Including TUN/TAP kernel drivers for openVPN

Hi there,

I need to run openVPN on the Zedboard, which requires access to the TUN/TAP network interface. OpenVPN installed fine, and is incorporated into my image, but it appears that the necessary TUN/TAP kernel drivers are not present.

How can I ensure that the TUN/TAP kernel drivers are included in my image?

I have the following two lines in my conf/local.conf file:

IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " kernel-modules"
CORE_IMAGE_EXTRA_INSTALL += "openssl openvpn docker tunctl

Does meta-xilinx not have a recipe for the TUN/TAP kernel modules? I don't know how I could include them in my (otherwise plain) linux-xlnx kernel.

I also tried using bitbake -c menuconfig virtual/kernel to manual include the modules in the image, however after doing this and rerunning bitbake core-image-minimal I still did not see tun.ko appear in either of the two locations below that I would expect them to be installed to...




Any help appreciated. Thanks!
