I'm trying to get diald working and am having some problems. I have a
working ppp connection using the pon, poff scripts. I installed diald and
configured the /etd/diald/diald.options file and rebooted to test. It
wouldn't dial my modem. Turned on the debug options in diald to try to
get a hint at the problem. What happens is an IP datagram triggers diald,
which then runs its connect script. I have diald connect set to
/usr/bin/pon. At this point there is an error, 'modprobe can't find
module ppp0', and the connect script fails.
I have ppp compiled into the kernel, not as a module so I really don't
understand this error. I carefully recompiled my kernel a couple of times
to verify that ppp is compiled into the kernel and I'm sure that it is.
Looking at dmesg output, I see the following:
PPP: version 2.2.0 (dynamic channel allocation)
TCP compression code copyright 1989 Regents of the University of
PPP Dynamic channel allocation code copyright 1995 Caldera, Inc.
PPP line discipline registered.
SLIP: version 0.8.4-NET3.019-NEWTTY (dynamic channels, max=256).
CSLIP: code copyright 1989 Regents of the University of California.
SLIP linefill/keepalive option.
This should indicate ppp support in the kernel, right? But I still get
this error. Any ideas?
