Kppp timeout

Kppp timeout

Post by Carl Marai » Wed, 29 May 2002 23:02:35



Hi

I have RedHat 7.3 and am trying to connect to the net using the Kppp Dialer.
Each time I try I get the following dialog appearing:

Timeout expired while waiting for the ppp interface to come up.

This happens while kpp is trying to log onto the network.

This is the output in /var/log/messages:

May 28 13:41:46 localhost modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module ppp0
May 28 13:41:46 localhost last message repeated 2 times
May 28 13:41:46 localhost kernel: CSLIP: code copyright 1989 Regents of the
University of California
May 28 13:41:46 localhost kernel: PPP generic driver version 2.4.2
May 28 13:41:46 localhost modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module ppp0
May 28 13:41:46 localhost modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module ppp0
May 28 13:41:46 localhost pppd[1561]: pppd 2.4.1 started by root, uid 0
May 28 13:41:46 localhost modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module ppp0
May 28 13:42:16 localhost last message repeated 244 times
May 28 13:42:16 localhost pppd[1561]: Terminating on signal 15.
May 28 13:42:16 localhost pppd[1561]: Exit.

The contents of the Kppp Log are:
ay 27 21:25:27 localhost pppd[3820]: pppd 2.4.1 started by root, uid 0
May 27 21:25:56 localhost pppd[3820]: Terminating on signal 15.
May 27 21:25:56 localhost pppd[3820]: Exit.

I found the following recomendation:
2.4.x kernels
The kernel ppp handling was completely rewritten for the 2.4.x series of
kernels. In this case you MUST make sure that you are running the 2.4.y
versions of pppd. Use at least pppd 2.4.1 as 2.4.0 had a number of bugs.
Furthermore, you must ensure that your system is set up properly for pppd.
Check to see if the device, /dev/ppp exists. If it does everything should be
OK. If it does not, first check that the new modules ppp_generic.o and
ppp_async.o exist in /lib/modules/2.4.*/net. Then try loading the
ppp_generic module
modprobe ppp_generic
and then see if it now exists. If it still does not exist, make sure that
the file /etc/devfsd.conf contains the line
 LOOKUP      ppp       MODLOAD

Otherwise you can create the device with
mknod /dev/ppp c 108 0
chmod 600 /dev/ppp
Also make sure that you have the following entries in /etc/modules.conf
(note the change in name from /etc/conf.modules in earlier kernel versions)
alias /dev/ppp      ppp_generic
alias char-major-108    ppp_generic
alias tty-ldisc-3   ppp_async
alias tty-ldisc-14  ppp_synctty
alias ppp-compress-21   bsd_comp
alias ppp-compress-24   ppp_deflate
alias ppp-compress-26   ppp_deflatepp

/dev/ppp does exist
ppp_generic.o and ppp_async.o exist in /lib/modules/2.4.*/net
I have added the specified lines to /etc/modules.conf

This has not helped.

I am really keen to put Windows in my past so help would be greatly
appreciated

Thanks

Carl

fix it.  The module should be there.

Err, yes, well. Do.

Do what you're told. Update the things (including pppd and modutils)
that you need for a 2.4 kernel.
