I am having problems using pppd (ppp 2.3.11 [and ppp 2.4.0]) with linux
kernel 2.2.16 (both from the slackware 7.1 distribution.).
When I try to fire up a ppp connection (using the script ppp-go generated by
the pppsetup program), pppd dies and the file /var/log/syslog has a message
from the "chat" program saying that "Can't get terminal parameters -
I tried to do it manually using minicom and manual starting of pppd. I
started minicom and dialed into my ISP which initialized PPP. Then I quit
_without_ resetting minicom and started pppd with the command "pppd -detach
/dev/ttyS0 38400 &". I get the following error:
ioctl(SIOCSIFMTU): No such device 19
tcflush failed: Input/Output error
I checked the HOWTOs, FAQs, READMEs with the PPP. I also searched the net
for mailing list archives. I've only seen the question posted at various
times but never an answer (well a hungarian site seems to have it but I am
limited to english).
I've setup PPP several times before with multiple machines and modems with
Kernel 2.0.33 and an older version of PPP. So clearly something has changed
in the kernel or PPP that is messing it up. Just don't know what!
Any help would be appreciated.
