Description kanagawa jigorou 2004-01-01 21:02:09 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6b)

Description of problem:
I downloaded 
and installed and reboot.

After reboot, I tried adsl-connect with SYNCHRONOUS option but failed.
Then I read '/var/log/messages' , I found following messages (excerpts)

Jan  2 04:19:35 localhost pppd[1560]: pppd 2.4.1 started by root, uid 0
Jan  2 04:19:35 localhost pppoe[1561]: Unable to set line discipline
to N_HDLC.  Make sure your kernel supports the N_HDLC line discipline,
or do not use the SYNCHRONOUS option.  Quitting.
Jan  2 04:19:35 localhost pppd[1560]: Couldn't get channel number:
Input/output error
Jan  2 04:19:35 localhost pppd[1560]: Exit.

So I ran 'rpm -q --fiilesbypkg kernel |grep hdlc', and found there is
no 'n_hdlc.ko'.
(but that is provided with kernel-2.6.0-1.21 in
fedora/core/development repository)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
always using the package

Actual Results:  can't use syncronous PPP

Expected Results:  arjanv's kernel include n_hdlc.ko and we run PPP
with syncronous option

Thank you, but I know that solves this problem.
And that doesn't solve the default package you provide still missing

Maybe, is it feature of the package you keep in
http://people.redhat.com/arjanv ?
If that is true, I understand the difference between the 2.6 kernel in
rawhide and the kernel you privide.
But in the case, you should add brief packaging-policy to readme.txt,
or try to sync files between two, IMHO.

It seems Brian C. Huffman also wonder the difference.


Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2004-01-02 14:08:44 UTC
teh CONFIG option is already enabled fwiw

ah found it; HDLC config option depends on SERIAL_NONSTANDARD option
which wasn't set...

Comment 4 kanagawa jigorou 2004-01-07 14:08:32 UTC
I verified the file 'n_hdlc.ko' in the package
Thank you for your kindness.

And I have to say "I'm sorry." to you about having you workd
unnecessary work for development.
I finally got your work around kernel and goal, but my realizing came
too late...

best regards
