Can't get AUTO_PPP going on Red Hat 5.0

Can't get AUTO_PPP going on Red Hat 5.0

Post by Scott Dudl » Fri, 03 Apr 1998 04:00:00

HELP!  I've setup linux PPP servers before (on Slackware) using mgetty
and pppd.  I just installed Red Hat 5.0 and am attempting the same.
Modems are configured, /etc/mgetty/config files are set, inittab
entries made, etc.  I compare all settings to an existing, working
system with modification required only for RH's different file
locations.  It doesn't work.  I've attached copy of the mgetty log.
It's apparently seeing the LCP request, but failing to match my
/AutoPPP/ entry in login.config.

Any assistance is very much appreciated.

1. Red Hat 5.0 vs. Red Hat 5.1

Hello everybody - what a beautiful day it is! Let's not get to funked
up, and get yourself a nice little pink flower to put in a orange vase.
Then grab yourself a slice and sit down and enjoy yourself. It can be
done in lot's of different ways -- just go ahead and do it under the
green sun.

Well... Nevermind.

I'm planning to buy Red Hat 5.1 official to replace my Red Hat 5.0 with.
But before I do that I wonder if there are any disadvantages, hazards or
such with RH 5.1, compared to RH 5.0. Is the installation as safe (don't
forget LILO), and things such as X, sound-support, printers and ppp -
are they still well supported, and not buggy or so?

Thanks in advance,


By the way, don't let the opening of this letter make you think that I'm
not serious enough.
