Question PPP module problem

I'm running Slackware 11 and have been trying to run ppp-go but all i get is an error message saying the kernel modules for ppp are not loaded. When i checked my kernel all the ppp modules were loaded.

Try it:

#lsmod (this list your actual loaded modules)

#depmod -a (this will load the dependent modules)

Then, if this doesn't works, you try:

#modprobe module_name

If it still doesn't works, you're gonna need to recompile your kernel with the new module.
