i'm running eddie on linux mint 18.2 cinnamon and have it in my repositories, so the update to 2.14.5. went through automatically. everything works fine, except for one thing:
under preferences, the protocols tab says "30 protocol modes not available due to your OpenVPN version".
does that mean that i must update my openvpn version? do i have to re-install eddie manually to achieve that or is there another way?
Unless you need one of those protocols, why bother updating openvpn? You never had the option for those protocols before, it just never told you they were available with a newer openvpn.
I got that same message when using Mint 18.3 but I only use UDP port 443 so I never bothered to update onpenvpn.
I'm now using Mint 19 beta which uses openvpn 2.4.4 so no more warnings, but I'm still only using UDP port 443 so it doesn't really matter to me, it wasn't the reason for me updating to Mint 19 beta. (I like shiny new things!)
Mint 19 should be out by the end of the month although I'm finding the beta very stable, normally Mint beta's move directly to stable releases via update manager, if you're interested in updating to the beta now.
