[please cc me on replies] high, i operate two machines, a laptop with a 56k pcmcia modem, and a desktop with an external 33.6k non-name modem. both run custom 2.4.17 kernels and pppd 2.4.1 from woody. i can't get the desktop to function like the laptop - it keeps losing the connection. a couple of points: both have kernel configuration of ppp with async tty support, bsd compression and deflate support. both have all these modules loaded. however, only the kernel-image of the laptop provides slhc.o, and i can't seem to figure out what kernel option is responsible. in the meantime i copied slhc.o from the laptop to the desktop and loaded it there without troubles. while i can establish and maintain connections to a provider with the laptop for hours on end, the desktop usually loses the peer within minutes - running a ping in the background usually prolongs that, but i haven't been able to stay connected for longer than 5 minutes. bloody modems! this is what i get: pppd: sent [LCP EchoRep id=0x5 magic=0x1c842308] pppd: sent [LCP EchoReq id=0x6 magic=0x1c842308] pppd: rcvd [LCP EchoReq id=0x6 magic=0x1c842308] pppd: appear to have received our own echo-reply! pppd: sent [LCP EchoRep id=0x6 magic=0x1c842308] pppd: sent [LCP EchoRep id=0x6 magic=0x1c842308] pppd: rcvd [LCP EchoRep id=0x6 magic=0x1c842308] pppd: appear to have received our own echo-reply! pppd: No response to 4 echo-requests pppd: Serial link appears to be disconnected. this is the same phone line, the same provider, just a different kernel and a different modem. this very modem _appears_ to work just fine on the serial port of my laptop, so it's got to be a kernel thing afaik... here's the kernel config diff, irrelevant info stripped: '<' lines are laptop '>' lines are desktop < CONFIG_KMOD=y > # CONFIG_KMOD is not set < # CONFIG_IP_MULTICAST is not set < # CONFIG_IP_ADVANCED_ROUTER is not set > CONFIG_IP_MULTICAST=y > CONFIG_IP_ADVANCED_ROUTER=y # CONFIG_PLIP is not set CONFIG_PPP=m # CONFIG_PPP_MULTILINK is not set CONFIG_PPP_FILTER=y CONFIG_PPP_ASYNC=m CONFIG_PPP_DEFLATE=m CONFIG_PPP_BSDCOMP=m # CONFIG_SLIP is not set < CONFIG_PPP_SYNC_TTY=m > # CONFIG_PPP_SYNC_TTY is not set < # CONFIG_PPPOE is not set > CONFIG_PPPOE=m < CONFIG_SOUND=y < CONFIG_SOUND_OSS=m < CONFIG_SOUND_VMIDI=m < CONFIG_SOUND_NM256=m > # CONFIG_SOUND is not set is this in any way helpful? how do i create the slhc.o module? any help appreciated!!! please CC me on replies! -- martin; (greetings from the heart of the sun.) \____ echo mailto: !#^."<*>"|tr "<*> mailto:" net@madduck echo '9,J8HD,fDGG8B@?:536FC5=8@I;C5?@H5B0D@5GBIELD54DL>@8L?:5GDEJ8LDG1' |\ sed ss,s50EBsg | tr 0-M 'p.wBt SgiIlxmLhan:o,erDsduv/cyP'
