pppd 2.2.0e won't compile

pppd 2.2.0e won't compile

Post by sam.. » Tue, 16 Apr 1996 04:00:00

ok here's where I'm at:

lcp.c: In function `RestartIdleTimer':
lcp.c:244: `PPPIOCGIDLE' undeclared (first use this function)
lcp.c:244: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
lcp.c:244: for each function it appears in.)
lcp.c: In function `LcpEchoCheck':
lcp.c:1708: `PPPIOCGIDLE' undeclared (first use this function)
make: *** [lcp.o] Error 1

I've upgraded the libraries and include files, nowhere can I find where
PPPIOCGIDLE is defined.

Any suggestions ?


1. Cannot compile pppd 2.2.0e!

I thought it was time to upgrade to a newer kernel, so I
downloaded and compiled kernel v.1.3.73. I am sure I included
support for ppp and tcp/ip networking etc. BTW, my previous setup
was Slackware 3.0 with kernel 1.2.13.

I reboot my machine and everything looks fine, except that when I
run pppd it says "Sorry: no support for ppp". After some
FAQ-reading I discovered that I needed version >2.2.0 of pppd, so
I downloaded version 2.2.0e.

The readme file states that I need to upgrade some kernel source
files by running "make kernel". "make kernel" did not install
anything because the ppp-part of my kernet was newer than the
files included in the ppp-package.

The readme file has a section about changing the /usr/src/linux/
drivers/net/Makefile, but when I compare the readme file with the
Makefile I notice that they are almost the same, except that
L_OBJS and M_OBJS in the readme file is LX_OBJS resp. MX_OBJS in
the Makefile. Anyway, time to compile pppd!

chat compiled fine, but pppd did not. All errors reported by gcc
are related to declarations that contains the word "int_32u" (or
something like that). It looks to me that there are no support
for this kind of variable. Now, what am I supposed to do? Has
anyone else experienced this problem?
Please help!
