I don't have that on mine.

I don't think you need it.


Just run adsl-setup to setup roaring penguin.

Then run adsl-start

well I just looked at the machine that is connecting me to the internet and there is no pppoe in the subdir network device support.


As a matter of fact I don't have ppp built in either.


we just had a bad storm go through.




what error do you get when running adsl-setup and adsl-start.

the pppoe daemon uses pppd and ethernet

make sure you have a working ethernet card, support for packet sockets, and pppd 2.4

and get the latest version of rp-pppoe
