diald ppp slip

diald ppp slip

Post by Thomas Wel » Mon, 01 Mar 1999 04:00:00

my linux machine had a working configuration as an internet router & was
dialing out for 2 windows 95 clients.
by a stupid mistake that machine has been powered down and up a few
times without halting/rebooting.
Now it is no more possible to dialout. pinging the linux box and using
apache works fine. Minicom finds the modem and I can dial out. diald
doesnt stay resident although config. has not changed.
I already recompiled the kernel - no difference.
running the ppp login scripts on the linux-box makes it hang, only a
"kill" makes it recover.

any help  is appreciated,



1. How to get kerneld/diald to autoload ppp/slip?

Okay, after much agony and reading-between-the-lines I managed to get
kerneld to autoload mouse.o and psaux.o (with modules-1.3.57 and
kernel 1.3.57) with the following entry in /etc/conf.modules:

alias char-major-10 psaux

Now I have similar problems with autoloading ppp and slip.
Specifically, diald 0.14 thinks there's no slip device support in the
kernel (it's right, but you know what I mean) and fails to start.  I
know another alias would solve this problem, but the modprobe manual
page seems woefully silent on the precise syntax of the 'alias'
command--'modprobe -c' reveals kerneld knows about

alias tty-ldisc-1 slip # What the heck does 'tty-ldisc' mean, anyway?
alias slip0 slip
alias slip1 slip
alias ppp0 ppp
alias ppp1 ppp

and I have added

alias sl0 slip
alias sl1 slip

with no luck.  Any pointers/tips/advice that a later kernel would
solve this problem would be appreciated.
