Hi, There,
I upgraded my kernel 1.2.13 to 2.0.1 version of kernel and after that
I try to use my ppp dial up and it doesn't work any more. I get the following message:

Console: 16 point font, 400 scans
Console: colour VGA+ 80x25, 1 virtual console (max 63)
Calibrating delay loop.. ok - 66.15 BogoMIPS

This processor honours the WP bit even when in supervisor mode. Good.

Sorry - PPP is not available on this system
SIOCADDRT: No such device

the ppp dial up works find under 1.2.13 kernel . Does any body know how to diagnose
this problem and fix it ?
I checked the How-To, couldn't find it.

I want to upgrade to 2.0 because I want to enable multicasting and tunnelling
and firewall. I just got the new release of kernel from mit site,
checked the option I like and put the kernel compiled there,
reboot, and oops, the ppp doesn't work any longer.

Hope I can get some help.
