DialupPPP dp-3.1 for x86?

Post by Mark De Reep » Sat, 21 Jan 1995 17:29:48

Has anyone been able to get this package to work on Sol2.4 x86 platform? I
have compiled it using Sun cc and did not get any errors. It PANIC's my
machine on trying to do the the ifconfig command.

The drivers appear to load OK. Any ideas?

1. Help dp-3.0 on Solaris x86

I have compiled and installed dp-3.0 on Solaris 2.1 x86 and that
worked fine.  But I'm having trouble getting it up and running.

When the system boots, /etc/dpctl -c is executed and has problems on
the line

   ${DPBIN_DIR}/dpconfig $if attach plumb

where DPBIN_DIR="/opt/dp/bin" and if="dp0"

dpconfig complains that /dev/dp does not exist and then attempts to
configure the interface via ifconfig fail.

My question is when is "/dev/dp" supposed to be created?  when the
modules are loaded?  I loaded the the modules but I didn't see and
/dev/dp file.

Any pointers from a fellow x86 or Sparc user would be helpful.

Thanks in advance.
