Hi... I'm all new to gentoo and this is going to be my first installation (hopefully) on my PowerBook G4 15" (867 MHZ, Radeon, 60 GB, 512 Ram). I'm trying to do a dual boot OSX Gentoo installation and already shrank my OSX partition to make some space.

I'm using a universal liveCD (install-universal-ppc-2004.0.iso).

Now here is my problem: after booting i try to setup my internet connection (Inode XDSL). I used a guide posted on this forum (https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=42032&highlight=xdsl) which should work.

but whenever i try to start: pptp 10.0.0.138 (ping works) I get the following error:

Code:

/usr/sbin/pppd: pppd is unable to open the /dev/ppp device. You need to create the /dev/ppp device node by executing the following command as root: mknod /dev/ppp c 108 0


well after using the mentioned command and trying

Code:

# pptp 10.0.0.138


I get another error:

Code:

/usr/sbin/pppd: This system lacks kernel support for PPP. This could be because the PPP kernel module could not be loaded, or because PPP was not included in the kernel configuration. If PPP was included as module, try /sbin/modprobe -v ppp. If that fails check that ppp.o exists in /lib/modules/ ... /net.


/sbin/modprobe -v ppp does not work because there is no module ppp.o on this CD. Another PPP module which i found in /lib/modules/ ... /net is already loaded.

What should i do? Any suggestions? :(

I dont believe that the image i burned is broken, because the md5 checksum was right.

Any help appriciated

Did anyone come across this error before?

Is there a workaround? e.g. Downloading and modprob another ppp.o module? :roll:

Please HELP! :cry:

I just read in the manual that you obviously cannot use pptp when booting from a livecd on ppc.

is that true???
