ppp on new kernel


When I compile 2.4.21 everything goes fine but the only thing is that I don't have the ppp module and I can use kppp. How do I fix this?

If you don't have the ppp module loaded, how can you use kppp? Do you mean you can't use kppp? Did you compile 2.4.21 to include ppp as a module, or built in to the kernel? From the kernel source (I am not in front of my linux box and use the 2.4.20 kernel myself), there seems to be only one ppp-generic module, whereas 2.4.20 has several ppp_modules. More info please Xpedition! You should know this by now

i'm not quite sure what you're asking X, but i think that any questions about PPP in the kernel can be answered by changing the appropriate options under "Network Options" (or something like that). if you use PPPOE, make sure to have included the PPPOE option as a module.

you can grep your configuration file to check whether these options are enabled:

dick@chimaera:~/install/linux-2.4.21$ grep -i ppp jake_wlan
CONFIG_PPP=y
# CONFIG_PPP_MULTILINK is not set
CONFIG_PPP_FILTER=y
CONFIG_PPP_ASYNC=y
CONFIG_PPP_SYNC_TTY=m
CONFIG_PPP_DEFLATE=m
CONFIG_PPP_BSDCOMP=m
CONFIG_PPPOE=y

good luck

Do I need rpppoe or what? I have 2.4.20 and I want to install 2.4.21 but when I try to use ppp it says that the module is not there and that i need to load it but I don't even have it. When I go to the /net directory I don't find any ppp

i don't know if you just did the full install of slack 9, but if you did, it should already have rpppoe packaged w/ it.

when you say "i try to use ppp," what do you mean? do you mean you try to connect over ADSL to your ISP or that you're using a dialup? i think that you must have these kernel options enabled either way.

when you say "the module isn't there" do you mean that the PPP modules don't appear when you use #lsmod? if you chose to add these options to your kernel (using a Y in the config), and not add them as modules (using an M in the config), they shouldn't appear when using #lsmod.

also make sure you have the right modules/kernel-options for your ethernet-card/modem. provided your internet interface is detected at boot and the correct PPP modules/options are in place, you can just use the #adsl-setup that's part of rpppoe to setup your PPPOE.

as for the /net directory, i have no useful comments.
