slackware current, adsl connection problem (time out)


I was using Slackware 10.0 and every was ok
now I have updated to slackware current and my adsl connection doesn't work.....

I have an ethernet adsl modem, so I use PPPoE

I'm using the same old configuration (working on 10.0), but when I launch "adsl-start" I always get the error:
TIMED OUT

What can I check or configure? (maybe I'm missed of update something, configure something... but I don't know)

thanks a lot!

or you may try reconfigure everything again running adsl-setup, them you can try adsl-start and if you still cant connect you can check more info about the problem running adsl-connect ...

Or maybe you can turn off/on you modem and see if something changes...

doing the full install I think all the needed packages should be already installed.......

the strange thing is that I do the same setup routine with adsl-setup, using slackware 10.1 and slackware current....
but with 10.1 this works, with current this doesn't work

what can I see using "adsl-connect"?

Did you get some error messages when you execute the adsl-* commands?

adsl-setup => no problem

adsl-start => .................... TIMED OUT
(and after some other message I don't remember now)... but it's after the time out error


P.S. the really weird thing is that I do the SAME install setup and adsl setup with 10.1 and it's all ok, but this doesn't work with current.........

don't worry keefaz
I have downloaded my current just two days ago, so I think it's current enough

Any error shown if you tail /var/log/syslog after an adsl-start ?
Is dmesg verbose about this ?

the adsl-start script has a debug mode.
maybe you'll find a clue with that.

just do a " export DEBUG=1 " before running "adsl-start ".

How many NIC do you have on your machine?

Make sure that the correct NIC (ethX) is configured to the adsl-modem.

This is what happend to me after I upgraded my kernel. I added ethernet over firewire into the kernel, and the eth assignment for my NIC which is interfaced to the adsl modem got pushed a notch up.

Something to watch out for.

I have only 1 NIC, so I think it's not the problem or maybe it can be?

when I will put my hands on the pc with slackware current I will try all your suggestions and I will put here the output......

thanks a lot

New config files. Some apps don't work with old config files. They aren't overwritten automaticly because it would erase all custom configuration. Just do a 'locate .new' and remove the .news.
