 PPP problems
Hi, I'd like to thank everyone that helped me with the compiler problem.
I've updated everthing in Documentation/Changes I have a brand spankers
new gcc, ppp, etc.  The problem I'm running into now is when I try to
connect to the internet, it says that I don't have a kernel that supports
PPP.  I've tried compiling it in as modules and as part of the kernel but
when I try to connect to the isp I keep getting the message that I don't
have a kernel that supports PPP. I've even contacted my System
Administrator, Hi Chris ;^).  Any ideas on what I could try next?  A cc
would be great, as I'm not on the linux-kernel list.

Thanks

Good judgement comes from experience, and experience -
well, that comes from poor judgement.

        Possibly a silly question, but you have created the /dev/ppp
character device, major number 108, minor 0 haven't you?

 PPP problems

Do you have the right kernel configuratoin?  It sounds like
you need to load the modules (or set modules.conf to
auto-load them with "alias" lines)

On linux 2.4 you need ppp_generic, ppp_async, slhc loaded
with modprobe or insmod.

on 2.4 config options under "network device support"

<M> PPP (point-to-point protocol) support
[ ]   PPP multilink support (EXPERIMENTAL)
<M>   PPP support for async serial ports
<M>   PPP support for sync tty ports
<M>   PPP Deflate compression
<M>   PPP BSD-Compress compression
<M>   PPP over Ethernet (EXPERIMENTAL)

your using a modem?  cable or ADSL?

reply to me privately, as linux-kernel probably isn't
the place to discuss this since it sounds like an install
issue... if we find it's a kernel bug then it would be ok.

if you're using a 2.2 kernel i suggest you try the
one that came with your distribution.

oh yeah what is your distribution?

Cheers,

Jeremy
