Description Christian Loitsch 2002-04-04 09:46:48 UTC
This is a patched version of pppd, which provides a module ( to use
kernel-pppoe.  If this module is not used (not in the options) pppd behaves like
the unpatched version.  (at least according to the author).

The ebuild-script is only slightly modified:
*  another download-location (from roaring-penguin), they provide an already
patched version
*  added HOMEPAGE
*  added 2 Makefile-changes, to accept compiler-flags (pppd/plugins/Makefile and
*  install 5 more files with doins
*  added an additional doc-file (the html-page from where I downloaded the
patched pppd)  This site is a wget from the site specified in HOMEPAGE
*  added a note (einfo) in postinstall which asks the user to read this added
doc-file if he wants to activate kernel-pppoe

I hope I did not forget anything.

The headers maybe not correct.

ok, added.  Thanks!  Maybe you should become a Gentoo Linux developer :)
