I have recently installed the 2.6.1 kernel in Slack 9.1. However, my adsl connnection has stopped working (it did work with 2.4.22). When I connect the modem flashes but no connection is made. When I type 'ifconfig ppp0' I get a error message saying the device is not found. There is no problems with the Alcatel USB modem I use so I suspect it is PPP settings.
All my config files are the same as they were before I compiled the new kernel (i.e options, peer/adsl, chap-secrets, resolv.conf files are all correct) and pppd 2.4.1 is still installed. I think it might be something to do with ppp devices not being installed.
Most of the ppp devices have been removed form my /dev directory I think. When I do 'ls *ppp*' in /dev I do not get ppp0 ppp1 etc. devices. I have tried './MAKEDEV ppp' and './MAKEDEV ppp0' but it doesn't work and gives me an error.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions,
