pppoe kernel module


I compiled a new kernel and when booted into the kernel I can't dial into my adsl provider. The pppoe module isn't in my .config file so I tried to add that line into the .config file and recompile. When i run make the line I added is removed and the compile starts. I looked through the entire menuconfig to see if I can find pppoe and couldn't find it. What section is it under? I've been looking under 'networking support'.

I'm using kernel version 3.1.7
Thanks in advance

NP but next time please use the "report" button instead and with it ask a moderator to move the thread.

* The option you're looking for is called 'CONFIG_PPPOE' (at least that's the option I see in the Linux Cross Reference for kernel 3.2) but I don't know what enables it (dependencies). Odd things is about every *_defconfig in source/arch/{arch}/configs/ has CONFIG_PPPOE=m but source/arch/x86/configs/*_defconfig hasn't.

I figured this out. You have to have to have SELECT_EXPERIMENTAL set in order for the CONFIG_PPPOE to work.
