Re: don't remove kernel 2.4 or bye-bye ppp, alsa
So we see that something alsa left in /etc/modprobe.d knocked out ppp etc.
# pppd ...
pppd: This system lacks kernel support for PPP. This could be because
the PPP kernel module could not be loaded, or because PPP was not
included in the kernel configuration. If PPP was included as a
module, try `/sbin/modprobe -v ppp'....
# /sbin/modprobe -v ppp
FATAL: Failed to open config file /etc/modprobe.d/alsa: No such file or directory
# ls -l /etc/modprobe.d/alsa
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 2004-03-24 02:42 /etc/modprobe.d/alsa -> /etc/alsa/modutils/1.0
# mv /etc/modprobe.d/alsa /etc/was-modprob.d-alsa
OK, ppp works now on kernel 2.6. I can play music too.
I was able to remove kernel 2.4 and the 2.4 alsa modules.
