Check out my revolutionary trace-and-replay de*:


1. kernel 1.3.45 and PPP

Hi folks;

Just compiled 1.3.45 of kernel.  Needed this for SCSI adapter ....
... BUT PPP decided not to work.

        "Sorry - PPP is not available on this system"

I've config'd several times, trying to pull in other TCP/IP *stuff*
to see if there was a straggling dependency... but to no avail.

Regardless of what I set, PPP refuses to "register" with the kernel.

Please help.
