can't locate module ppp0

Post by r » Thu, 17 May 2001 22:55:04



Starting a connection with kppp (SuSE 7.1 Kernel 2.4.0-4GB) after CONNECT
it sends me this message on the console:

linux modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module ppp0
linux last message repeated 9 times

the modem functions as well as wmppp and I think the kernel is configured
to load the module (the version is the original version of the distribution)
Inside the folder /lib/modules/2.4.0-4GB/net/ there is the module ppp_mppe.

This version of PPP are you using?, and did you upgrade your kernel to 2.4.0
manually or was it part of the default installation of the distribution ?

It was part of the default distribution with Kernel 2.4.0

Okay, when the system boots, does it say that it is registering the PPP line
discipline.  You may need to check your system boot messages with "dmesg" or
one of your boot logs.  It is almost like the kernel is being distributed
without PPP support or you are missing a line in your conf.modules file,
although it should all work if it was the default install.

Yes the lines there are:

PPP generic driver version 2.4.1
PPP BSD Compression module registered
PPP Deflate Compression module registered

and now I am connected with it.

?? I certainly have no idea what this means. Please if you want help be
expansive, not frugal with your answers. Tell us more than you think we
need.
What version of pppd are you running?  In youlook in /var/log/messages,
it tells you!
It MUST be pppd 2.4.1 Earlier versions will work with kernel 2.4.0 but
do not work with kernel 2.4.1 or greater.

Have you checked your modules.conf? The problem I always found was no
module deps to majors.

1. can't locate module ppp0:0 ... ppp0:49

I also get the above error message after a ppp connection has been
established with my ISP, specifically after I get my IP address from the
ISP's DHCP server.

Given that I saw other users with different distributions having this
problem (Redhat, Slackware, Debian), and that no one seems to have the
answer so far, what's wrong here??

Using Redhat 6.0, clean install of 2.2.5-15 then upgraded to 2.2.5-22.

Again, I did not have this problem when I used Redhat 5.2 and then
upgrading the kernel to 2.2.x.
