Tailscale VPN In CL

Hey, my first question here :slight_smile:
Is it possible to install Tailscale in CL? How?

I would email the Tailscale address listed at the bottom and get their feedback on it.

"
sudo curl -fsSL https://tailscale.com/install.sh | sh

The ultimate would be if Tailscale creates a Clear bundle to add to their repo.

There is a feature request in github to add Clear Linux to the install script.

But the dev says the script probably cant be adapted due to the bundle manager. He noted that additional knowledge on swupd management would be needed.

Tailscale simply rides on top of Wireguard, which there is references on how to setup on Clear.

I used the Linux “Other” process for Tailscale as defined on their website.

Basically runs the binary directly or you can have it run in systemd. (they provide the config files)

No dice. Clear refused to run the tailscaler binary.

I might be missing something, but it will need some development it appears.

Can run binary but when rebooting service dont start:

"
systemctl status tailscaled.service
"

Did you install the network basic bundle and wireguard prior to running the binary?

dont need network basic or wireguard i think. Just correct path.

Can start now and have a working session but after reboot service dont start
Can network-pre.target be the problem? I dont know.

Clear Linux is very promising but lacks some support.
Vill try to solve this weekend, then back to debian…
