Description Eric Lajoie 2018-04-08 19:14:05 UTC
Description of problem:
NetworkManager-ppp includes package ppp which includes its own kernel module "rp-pppoe". When trying to connect with nmcli we get error.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
pppd version 2.4.7
nmcli tool, version 1.10.6-1.fc28

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Fedora 28 minimal server
2.dnf install NetworkManager-ppp
3.nmcli connection add type pppoe ifname enp2s0 username 00xxx5511yyy0001@t-online.de password zzz

Actual results:
nmcli con up pppoe-enp2s0
Error: Connection activation failed: PPP failed

Journalctl -xe
pppd[9931]: /usr/lib/../lib64/pppd/2.4.7/rp-pppoe.so: undefined symbol: the_channel
pppd[9931]: Couldn't load plugin rp-pppoe.so

Expected results:
ppp0 link comes up

Additional info:
This was working in Fedora 27 but I may be missing a config option

Comment 1 Steven Haigh 2018-04-09 06:09:23 UTC
My PPPoE has broken in Fedora 28 as well. Was working fine in F27.

This is certainly a bug.

Comment 2 Steven Haigh 2018-04-09 06:41:01 UTC
For what its worth, I managed to at least get online by installing the rp-pppoe package, then setting up the connection via 'pppoe-setup', then activating with 'ifup ppp0'.

This is at least a workaround until the issue in this report is fixed.

Comment 5 Eric Lajoie 2018-04-09 10:22:03 UTC
I did notice the Fedora27 dep includes compat-openssl10 which I did not see install with the Fedora28 packages.  I don't think its the issue but sharing the data point.

It should install openssl dep, the EAP-TLS patch has been updated, so it doesn't need the compat version.

For the record, this seems fixed in ppp-2.4.7-21.fc28 here:
