kppp on Inspiron 5000e
- Using the ppp.o for Linux 2.2.16 from Christoph Hebeisen's web site
www.heby.de/computer/ltmodem I was able to get RedHat 7 to
successfully connect to my ATT Worldnet account.
Red Hat 7 is 2.2.16-22 so you have to force ppp.o to be loaded.
To make this work, rename ppp.o in /lib/modules/2.2.16-22/net/ppp.o to
ppp.o.orig and then put Christoph's ppp.o into the net folder.
Use the following insmod commands:
insmod /lib/modules/2.2.16-22/net/ppp.o -f
With both of these mods loaded, kppp & ppp both started and I can
access the web.
Unfortunately, once I disconnect (using kppp disconnect), kppp
(actually ppp) won't restart until I shutdown and restart.
Has anyone else got this working? If so, any ideas on why I cannot
run kppp more than once?
- I'm using an Inspiron 4000 (that I just succeeded in installing RH 7 on) and
I'd love to be able to eliminate that obnoxious click-by-tapping feature on
the track pad.
How can I do that?

Mind you, the version I downloaded (which I think is the latest) doesn't seem
to come with any sort of documentation, so I haven't managed to figure out how
to use it yet. But I've got the source now so I'm sure I will figure it out.

I found that when I disconnect and connect again, kppp hangs.. and
then i kill it and do a 'lsmod' and i see a "2" in front of ltmodem..
thus the driver is being used and i can't rmmod it!
A quick solution is to disconnect, stop kppp, remove all module, load
the modules again and restart kppp.. whew! put all this in a script
file and u're set to go!
Q: Is there any way to forcefully remove a module even if it shows
that its being used? that'll be great!
