Description Tom Cross 1999-11-13 22:57:08 UTC
I have a RedHat 6.1 box with Dual Pentium-Pro processors. The RH6.1 install correctly identified this and I'm currently using 2-2.12-20smp for i686. When I try to connect via PPP to the internet, I get the following in /var/log/messages: Nov 13 14:59:15 hal diald: Running pppd (pid = 1197). Nov 13 14:59:15 hal modprobe: can't locate module char-major-108 Nov 13 14:59:15 hal pppd: pppd 2.3.10 started by root, uid 0 Nov 13 14:59:15 hal pppd: Using interface ppp0 Nov 13 14:59:15 hal pppd: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/ttyS0 Nov 13 14:59:21 hal pppd: Remote message: Login Succeeded Nov 13 14:59:48 hal pppd: Connection terminated. Nov 13 14:59:48 hal pppd: Exit. I enabled debug for pppd and found this: Nov 13 16:32:09 hal pppd: rcvd [PAP AuthAck id=0x2 "Login Succeeded"] Nov 13 16:32:09 hal pppd: Remote message: Login Succeeded Nov 13 16:32:09 hal pppd: rcvd [IPCP ConfReq id=0x1 <compress VJ 0f00> <addr 22.214.171.124>] Nov 13 16:32:12 hal pppd: rcvd [IPCP ConfReq id=0x2 <compress VJ 0f00> <addr 126.96.36.199>] Nov 13 16:32:15 hal pppd: rcvd [IPCP ConfReq id=0x3 <compress VJ 0f00> <addr 188.8.131.52>] Nov 13 16:32:18 hal pppd: rcvd [IPCP ConfReq id=0x4 <compress VJ 0f00> <addr 184.108.40.206>] Nov 13 16:32:22 hal pppd: rcvd [IPCP ConfReq id=0x5 <compress VJ 0f00> <addr 220.127.116.11>] It LOOKS like it can't to VJ header compression. I thought it might have been a mis-compiled kernel so I recompiled make sure PPP was checked as a module (it was). My new kernel still did not work. I will try this with a UP and post the results. Is there a known problem with PPP/SMP/VJ?

I tried the Uniprocessor kernel that the installer installed for me and I had exactly the same results with PPP and VJ.
Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-19 21:38:59 UTC
No, it can certainly do vj compression. Can you give me the output of rpm -q ppp initscripts Thanks.
Comment 3 Tom Cross 1999-11-19 21:51:59 UTC
[tomc@hal tomc]$ rpm -q ppp initscripts ppp-2.3.10-3 initscripts-4.63-1 I forgot to mention that I have basically done a rpm -UvhF *.rpm from the 6.1 updates directory.
Comment 4 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-02-29 14:24:59 UTC
Others have reported that adding "novj" to their /etc/ppp/options file improves things for them. This is too rare an occurrence to be sure it's a bug in the Linux ppp driver -- what kind of system is on the other end of the line?
