PPP does not work after kernel upgrade?

Post by Henry Zheng » Wed, 03 Sep 1997 04:00:00



I recently updated my slackware linux kernel from 1.2.13 to 2.0.30
with PPP-support included and SoundCard/CD-ROM support added.
The newly added SoundCard and CD-ROM seem to work fine.
However, my "ppp-on" does not work any more with the new kernel.
Every time I tried, the modem does dial at all. The "ppp-on"  still
works if I boot the old kernel instead. Anybody
know why, and how to fix it?

Use 2.0.29 instead. I had the same problems. Using 2.1.48 did not help.

Your old 1.2.13 kernel used ppp-2.1.2 ppp -code. Newer ( > 2.0)
kernels need 2.2.0 ppp-code. So you must upgrade your ppp -package as
well.

Hello

Did you update you're PPP demon to. Version 2.0.** requires a later
PPP demon, something like 1.2????..... Make sure you have the newer
PPPD

1. ppp not working after kernel upgrade

I just upgraded linux kernel from 1.2.13 to 2.0.33. System boots up
ok, but pppd gives the following msg:
"Sorry - PPP is not available on this system"

The following is some related info:

        - kernel is configured with CONFIG_PPP, CONFIG_NET,etc turned on
        - pppd version is 2.1.2d
        - at system boot, the following mesg showed up:
          "PPP: version 2.2.0 .... registered."

Do I need to upgrade my pppd? (which worked fine with the ppp version
0.2.7 under kernel 1.2.13) or is there anything I missed in updgrading
the kernel? Any pointers are appreciated.
