I'm missing in the provided kernel the
kernel/drivers/net/tun.ko driver (to enable openvpn):

debian:~# cat /proc/version 
Linux version (yh@debian) (gcc version 3.4.6) #128 Fri Dec 19
18:57:57 CST 2008

If anyone has it around I'm interested! I'm currently uneable
to download lemote kernel sources (looks like it's a problem
between my ISP and lemote since other report success in bandwidth,
I'll look into in the coming days).

Thanks in advance,
