I am trying to set up INN for my machine, and one of the first steps
is to configure the dummy device.
I rebuilt my kernel with the dummy device included, installed it
with lilo as normal and rebooted, but when I try it it responds like
# ifconfig dummy
dummy: unknown interface.
My system is a P75 running Slackware96 (kernel 2.0). It doesn't have
an Ethernet card and the only networking is via the modem (I connect
using a dip script) or to localhost for local logins.
I have checked the NET-2-HOWTO file and the "Linux Network Administrator's
Guide" and "Running Linux" books from O'Reilly but they don't seem to
have heard of this problem.
Can anyone help?
