Hi. I just bought an Intel 536ep modem. Now the drivers compiled fine and I can even dial with my modem, but as soon as it connects with the ISP, pppd dies and says could not link or bind (I don't exactly remember) tty to ppp.
I've narrowed the problem down to a missing ppp0 interface. Can anyone help me?
Ok, I just realised what you wanna know. The thing is, I compiled PPP async support directly into my kernel, so that's not an issue. Kppp also tells me that the kernel supports PPP fine. Ok, now here's the actual error I get: Couldn't set tty to PPP discipline: Invalid argument. Can anyone tell me what this means?
