Re: [SLE] Baffled by PPP

Hello, Geoff :)

my ppp seems to be vers 2.3.8

{ being a non-progressive type, am still running, basically,
SuSE 6.2 {;-> }

with kernel linux-2.2.16 all fine ~ no probs

however, when using linux-2.4.7 , am hitting several probs :-

Serial ports
modules in new places

by creating /lib/modules/2.4.7/misc
, and, then, copying the serial ports module to the misc directory,
i manage to get the use of serial ports :)

BUT, java still screwed up, and ppp dont work

What am wondering: Maybe the SuSE Kernel, as organized, by the
Great Herr Mantel, puts modules in 'SuSE kinda places' ? :)

~ meantime, am relaxing, in the shade, with linux-2.2.16

and, . . . Gee, it IS hot here ~ like 40 deg Centigrade #%$@

best wishes
Aegina, Greece
