I broke pppoe

That sums it up. Slack 12. I was messing around with some rc.d stuff, disabled samba and apache and ... drumroll please... recompiled the kernel and really can't recall but if it was an option, I would have left out samba, apache and possible dhcp.

If anyone remembers I asked a while back if I needed dhcp for pppoe and the consensus (at other places too) was no.

Anyway, when I pppoe-start it does not connect, but times out.

My eth0 card and "lo" is shown in ifconfig. eth0 card has an address, I ran netconfig again, ran pppoe-setup again... nothing has gotten it to work again.

Any suggestions?

I have DSL fiber direct connection from eth card to NIC.

What does it say in /var/log/messages when trying to connect?
