Description Henri Schlereth 2000-12-04 11:20:29 EST
Dec  4 07:20:07 kesrith modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module ldisc-3
Dec  4 07:20:07 kesrith pppd[19328]: ioctl(TIOCSETD): Invalid argument(22)

I have ppp to auto-redial after a disconnect (every 4 hours normally), it failed and stopped.
I had to manually bring up ppp and it stayed up again. I dont know if the module is related but
it doesnt exist. There are some refers to it in headers/include but no module.

Does adding "alias ldisc-3 ppp" (for 2.4-series kernels, use "alias ldisc-3
ppp_async") fix this problem?
Comment 2 Henri Schlereth 2001-01-16 00:58:23 EST
Well, no, afterall it only happened once and hasnt happened again.
Comment 3 Henri Schlereth 2001-06-26 20:59:57 EDT
Fixed in 7.1. New issues with ppp under 7.1 in #44097/38132
