Is this fixed on udev 051?
Comment 3 giovanni.bobbio 2005-03-08 04:53:18 UTC
A quick test with udev 054 shows that /dev/ppp isn't there, yet.
Comment 4 Henk Spaaij 2005-03-22 09:08:16 UTC
This bug is [b]not[/b] fixed.

Neither udev-45, udev-54, creates /dev/ppp

Have to manually: "mknod /dev/ppp c 108 0"

to get ppp to work using pon.
Comment 5 Greg Kroah-Hartman (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-03-23 23:43:22 UTC
Is the ppp module loaded already?  Or are you creating the node, accessing the node, and then having the kernel load the module?  If so, yes, you will have to do it by hand.

adding ppp_generic to kernel-2.6 works fine here, the /dev/ppp node gets created.

Comment 8 giovanni.bobbio 2005-05-31 00:23:24 UTC
/dev/ppp can also be created by modprobing ppp_generic instead of mknoding it. 
It would be more convenient if the ppp_generic module were loaded

You have to load the ppp module before the /dev/ppp node is created.

If you want it autoloaded, put it in the /etc/modules.autoload.d/ directory.

Comment 12 Sven 2005-06-23 20:02:39 UTC
My Internat-Gateway bootet after emerging udev:

ppp_generic was loaded!
/dev/ppp didn't exist

The module "microcode" was loaded too.
/dev/cpu/microcode wasn't created either.
Comment 13 Sven 2005-06-24 05:05:13 UTC
I now have ppp_generic on top of my autoload-list. Still no /dev/ppp.
On a second gentoo-install, modprobeing ppp_generic creates /dev/ppp. On my
internet-gateway, it doesn't - for some reason.

Which udev-rule is responsible for creating /dev/ppp?
Which swtichtes can be turned on/off to track the problem down?


BTW: please reopen the bug! i can't, since i'm not the owner.
