SV: Problems compiling ppp for linux-2.4

Thanks for your help!

I compiled yor ppp-2.4.0 with the following:
>make clinux

it went through the compilation (with som warnings) and produced pppd but
when I try to run it on the Etrax LX board it says something like:
"This system lacks kernel support for PPP...."
Sound like the kernel has to be configured for ppp, is that the case?
If so, how is it done?
thanks again!

linux-2.4 needs ppp-2.4.0, that version is based on ppp-2.3.0-something
(I think).

I've hacked up ppp-2.4.0 to work with etrax LX. I removed chap
authentication since I don't need it and remade the makefiles to
look more like other makefiles for etrax (but they are rather ugly right
now due to a lot of experimentation). I didn't get chap to work since
it depended on some function in libcrypt which in turn depended on
some missing function in uclibc.

Anyway, I've put that hacked version on:
