PPP Error, please help ;)

Post by Dave Eva » Mon, 06 Nov 1995 04:00:00



Ok, after finally figuring out how to get connected to my ISP, I am
having a pppd problem that I haven't seen in any of the various
howto's or posted here. After I am connected and logged in, and I
think after the PPP negotiation, I get the following error:
"Problem: block on freelist at 00aba40c isn't free." minus the quotes.
 these numbers change              xxxxx  each time around
Then at the bash prompt, any command I try to enter results in:
"bash: fork: out of memory"
I use a standard pppd command line with the options -detach debug
crtscts modem defaultroute noipdefault

System stuff:
P5-75 overclocked to 90
16 meg ram
2 quantum fireballs 1080mb
1 for linux, 1 for windoze
usr 28.8 sportster
slackware 3.0, kernel 1.3.37
latest ppp (X.X.c)

Out of the syslog:

and out of the messages: (these are the only abnormal lines)

/etc/ppp/ip-up :Out of memory
Nov 5 00:04:42 c*pppd [97] Failed to create child process for
/etc/ppp/ip-down :Out of memory

So, any ideas? I really hate using Win95 now that I have been using
Linux, but I still am stuck with it because almost everything I do is
on the net, which was a cake walk to set up on Win95. Thanks in
advance, and post or mail replies, makes no difference to me.

1. Compiling kernel, getting error at PPP section, please help...

I'm having the same problem trying to get PPP 2.2.0c drivers into the
kernel, and I even tried "make config clean depend zImage." Here's
what I get when the kernel build (v 1.2.13) bombs:

-------------------

make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-1.2.13/drivers/net'
gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux-1.2.13/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe -m486 -I../../net/inet -c ppp.c

-----------------------

I followed Michael Callahan and Al Longyear's PPP 2.2.0 installation
instructions to the letter - or at least I thought I did.

Can some kind soul tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.
