ppp + kernel 2.4.18 crash

Post by Giancarlo Sangall » Thu, 16 May 2002 17:31:00



Thanks to anyone can help me in advance.

I am using a dell Latitude CPt with Xircom creditcard Ethernet + Modem
(CEM56-100) PCMCIA.
My system is Mandrake 8.2, with kernel 2.4.18 and pppd 2.4.1

When starting a ppp connection (to a PC Linux with Mandrake 8.1), I got
a kernel crash. The logs are:
