Description

See #47327:

Citing:

... there be dragons on Yosemite, since unless a a flag in nvram is altered, kernel extensions are required to be signed [1].

Updating the version to current is a first step towards achieving something useful on Yosemite, in any case! Perhaps until some way of allowing the kexts to be signed (when a user has sufficient apple developer credentials) is developed an addition to this port's notes would be appropriate, indicating the nvram workaround required on yosemite.

Aside: I have successfully installed the binary version from sourceforge, which is working fine on Yosemite.

Notarized (and presumably signed) versions of the tuntaposx kexts are available in tunnelblick, and its developer says they may be used outside of tunnelblick:
