I try to establish a adsl connection after during installation from a rc2 live
cd (pentium3 iso or x86 iso). The adsl-start script times out. My NIC is
recognized and the appropriate module (natsemi) is loaded. I had successfully
used net-setup eth0 and I can ping to 192.168.1.1
Previously I had used a rc1 live cd without adsl problems and I tested it again
and it works. The error message I got is as follows:
......... TIMED OUT
/usr/sbin/adsl-start: line 194: 3072 Terminated $CONNECT "$@"
I posted to forums.gentoo.org (http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=32207)
but there were no replies up to now.
I appreciate any advices. Thanks in advance!
Actually it seems the problem is with pppoe. pppoe -A should give some
information about a reachable access concentrator. This is what pppoe -A does
with rc1, but under rc2 it exits with:
# pppoe -A
pppoe: Timeout waiting for PADO packets
I don't know why pppoe can't find an access concentrator. Hope this info helps a
please test latest livecd
Sorry for being late... I've tested again with the latest live cd rc4 and ADSL support works
fine now. I consider the problem solved.
as the problem is solved, please close this bug
