Fedora 21 pppoe connection!


Hi everybody,

I have just installed Fedora 21 but i cannot connect to internet via pppoe! I have started the pppoe-setup script, entered all the required data but i cannot connect! Pppoe-setup worked flawlessly in previous versions of fedoras but now I get the following error message via pppoe-status " The link is down -- could net find interface corresponding to pppd pid 4479"! The only thing that changed in the pppoe-setup script in F21 (from previous versions) is the name of the interface, all the rest - dns servers, username, password - were previously used and valid!

I did ifconfig and told me that my interface is enp2s0 and that what I entered in the pppoe script! I tried also eth0 or em1 as interfaces but it is not working,

Also, I do not have a tweak tool in my install, i cannot add any icons to my desktop!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards, Felix

Either something changed between the two or a bad install.

I'd have thought the predictable naming was in an earlier version but it shouldn't be an issue unless the ppoe app is also not updated.

Maybe post what nic you have, post any data about lspci/lsusp and ip command. ifconfig ought to be depreciated.

Some ideas in here too about dhcpd and other ideas to consider. https://unix.stackexchange.com/quest...no-such-device
