kppp & sndconfig Q's

Post by Henry Lu » Fri, 05 Nov 1999 04:00:00



I got the following error messages when I launch kppp as a root:

<start of error msgs>
This kernel has no PPP support, neither compiled in nor via the kernel
module loader

To solve this problem:
        * contact your system administrator
or
        * install a kernel with PPP support

</end of error msgs>

Also, when I chose probe in sndconfig, I got the following error messages:

<start of error msgs>
Error: No sound modules found
You don't seem to be running a kernel
with modular sound enabled (soundcore.o
was not found in the module search path).
</end of error msgs>

What should I do?  Recompile the kernel?

I have the slackware 7.0 distribution, and the same problem with kppp.

My pppd is version 2.3.10 but the ppp.o module in the kernel source is 2.3.7.

So I grabbed the pppd 2.3.10 source distributions, which has a shell script
for upgrading the
ppp.c in the kernel source, and ran it.

I recompiled the kernel, and the ppp.o module (and other linked modules).
I didn't have to reconfigure the kernel nor to recompile the pppd binary.
Once I copied the modules where they should be, everything worked without any

error messages.

Thanks, but where should I get the source distributions, how many files
should I download?  

Thanks,
Henry

1. Can't Get isapnp & sndconfig to Work

Hi Folks,

I'm doing my best to configure my AudioPCI card in Red Hat 5.2.  I have
downloaded the updated kernel with modular sound support.

When I run sndconfig, it correctly identifies that I have an AudioPCI
card, but it tries to run isapnp and fails.  It fails on the first
occurrence of (ISOLATE) and stops.  I tried commenting out this line,
but then the sound card won't play (sox: Can't open output file /
'/dev/dsp': Operation not supported by device).

I tried using pnpdump to see what device information there was, and it
checks every port address and says:  "No boards found".

If I look at /proc/pci, my board is there:

  Bus  0, device  16, function  0:
    Multimedia audio controller: Ensoniq AudioPCI (rev 0).
      Slow devsel.  IRQ 11.  Master Capable.  Latency=64.  Min Gnt=12. \
Max Lat=128.
      I/O at 0xef00.

Anyone seen anything like this?  The board is a SuperMicro P6SBS, and
I have PNP support disabled in BIOS.  The man page for isapnp.conf says
that this is a good idea.

Thanks for any help!
