Description Bernd 2002-03-26 08:08:13 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.8) Gecko/20020205

Description of problem:
When starting a ppp connection (wvdial, kppp, rp3) everything is OK until the
moment, linux actually starts the ppp daemon: I get the message of the loaded
BSD compression module and after that: 'unable to handle kernel paging...' you
can't read it really, because it scrolls like mad over the screen and the system
is locked.  tried different ISPs

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. plug a serial modem (elsa microlink) to my vaio notebook
2. start any ppp connection


Actual Results:  system is locked, sometimes reboots immediately

Expected Results:  have a nice ppp interface up

Additional info:

can't copy output because the sytem is locked.
/var/log/messages says nothing about it (login to ISP works fine, password is
accepted, BSD compression module is loaded (sometimes!))
HW: serial modem on ttyS0/vaio notebook (FX301)
Comment 1 Bernd 2002-03-26 17:09:22 EST
I just compiled a new kernel (vanilla 2.4.18) and ppp works fine
Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2002-04-05 09:55:06 EST
ought to work now in 2.4.18-0.13; is in rawhide...
