Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 41613
ppp not loaded by default in 2.4 kernel
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:33:21 EDT
Description of Problem:
After upgrading to the 2.4 kernel (from 2.2), the ppp module is no longer
available. The error message says that ppp module could not be loaded into
the kernel. I rolled back to the 2.2 kernel, confirmed that ppp loaded
(logged into ISP), and upgraded again to 2.4. This time I chose custom and
verified the ppp was selected but after the upgrade received the same
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RedHat 7, verify that ppp is working (log into ISP)
2. Upgrade to 7.1 and attempt to connect to internet. 3.
Error states that ppp module was not loaded into the kernel.
Please verify this with a newer version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Fedora
Core and reopen it against the new version if it still occurs.
Closing as "not a bug" for now.
