version, which gave you this error.
As for the error, I had accidentially compressed the file with bzip2 instead of gzip. So
please delete your openvpn-lzo-ls1-v3.tar.gz, re-download the file, and "tar -C / -xvzf
openvpn-lzo-ls1-v3.tar.gz" once again. That should be it, the latest version of openvpn
should be installed on your system at this point.
