Description daniel.tweedt 1999-01-07 16:52:51 UTC
Using the generic kernel for releases 1 and 3 (and maybe
0.7?) I get an error message when trying to establish a
ppp-connection with my ISP. When I rebuild the kernel then
it works fine. I'm not sure if it's significant, but all the
kernels that I've built have ISND (and SCSI) support
removed. Also, I checked the module dependencies (for ppp,
slhc, slip) with both the generic and rebuilt kernels, and
they appear to be the same.

we will need to see an output of you kernel messages when you are
trying to make a ppp connection. You can do this by typing

tail /var/log/messages

after it fails. Then provide that output to the bugzilla system.

It looks like the kernel is looking in the wrong place; it should be
looking for the module dependencies in /lib/modules/preferred or

Jan  6 21:25:04 sonic pppd[1420]: This system lacks kernel support for
PPP.  This could be because the PPP kernel module is not loaded, or
because the kernel is not configured for PPP.  See the README.linux
file in the ppp-2.3.5 distribution.

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 1999-01-07 18:08:59 UTC
The path /lib/modules/2.0.36 indicates that you are not loading
modules from a  Red Hat kernel. Try doing
	mv /lib/modules/2.0.36 /lib/modules/2.0.36-SAVE
and see if your problem is resolved. If so, you might
take a look at problem #96 which describes a modultils bug
that may be affecting you.

Please reopen this bug if you still have a problem.
