I guess if I'm the only person in the world to notice that the 
slip.ko is missing, it's best to leave it out.  I don't need it 
Comment 2 Alan Cox 2004-06-18 21:19:55 EDT
Slip still missing in FC2 errata 

And no you are far from the only user.. Slip should be re-enabled
Comment 4 Dave Jones 2004-11-02 23:03:02 EST
reenabled for the next build.
Comment 5 Euan de Kock 2004-11-15 03:29:04 EST
Slip does not appear to be in FC3 either, when will it be re-enabled ?

rpm -qlp kernel-2.6.9-1.667.i686.rpm | grep -i slip
