I've just downloaded and compiled 1.3.73 and the pcmcia module so I can
use both the serial and Ethernet ports of my 3C562 simultaneously. All
went well (amazing!) except I can't get SLIP to go on the serial port.
Ethernet works, DIP dials and connects and goes through an entire script
correctly, but when it ends--no SLIP and ifconfig shows no SLIP interface.
I'm not sure exactly what I configured into the kernel but there's nothing
about SLIP in dmesg (as there was in earlier, non-module kernals I've
used). The README.modules for this kernal mentions a slip module but when
I did as directed (make modules, make modules_install) there's no
improvement. Make modules spent a while apparently compiling a floppy
module but nothing else I noticed. If I do modprobe -l I see two modules:
floppy and 8390--whatever that is.
Any information will be greatly appreciated.
