After a bunch of years of using other flavors if
Unix (SunOS 4, Solaris 2, HP/UX, Linux, etc). I
finally decided to try FreeBSD. Installed 2.2.6
without any significant problems, configured the
kernel to include the devices I've got and exclude
those I don't.
Got ppp.conf set up, can connect and negotiate a
PPP connection with no problem (pertinent log files
below). When I try to ping (or telnet, or ftp,
or nslookup, or.....) I get an error message reading
"ping: sendto: Address family not supported by protocol family".
I checked in my kernel config file, and I *am* defining
INET. I booted under the old GENERIC kernel (yes, I
did keep a copy around) and observe the same behavior.
Any pointers as to what I might be doing wrong? I'd
be glad to RTFM if I could find the appropriate FM
(didn't find anything of value in the FAQ's or in
Lehey's "The Complete FreeBSD").
