Description Oleg Gawriloff 2011-04-26 14:39:07 UTC
Stable version of rp-pppoe (rp-pppoe-3.8-r2) does not detect kernel-mode PPPoE support mode. Here's relevant string from:  ebuild rp-pppoe-3.8-r2.ebuild clean compile
checking for Linux 2.4.X kernel-mode PPPoE support... no
At the same time unstable rp-pppoe-3.10-r1.ebuild detects it well.

checking for Linux 2.4.X kernel-mode PPPoE support... yes

Update stable version pls. Working patch may be found here:

Reproducible: Always

+*rp-pppoe-3.11-r3 (07 Jan 2015)
+  07 Jan 2015; Pacho Ramos <> +files/rp-pppoe-3.11-kmode.patch,
+  +rp-pppoe-3.11-r3.ebuild, -rp-pppoe-3.10-r1.ebuild, -rp-pppoe-3.11-r1.ebuild:
+  Don't hardcode ppp detection at some phases and try to autodetect on others,
+  fix kmode detection using ArchLinux approach (#364941), rename X USE flag to
+  'tk' (#349014), drop old

Does it work ok for you?

Currently net-dialup/rp-pppoe does not build kernel plugin but only installs symlink to very old plugin which comes bundled with net-dialup/ppp. Can you fix this?

With 3.13:

checking for Linux 2.4.X kernel-mode PPPoE support... yes

I only found this because it triggered automatic loading of the module in question right from the sandbox:
