missing pppoe.conf [fixed]

Postby mailmaldi on Sat Jun 28, 2008 6:20 pm

when i run pppoe-setup , i get the following error.

Code: Select all
 # pppoe-setup
Welcome to the Roaring Penguin PPPoE client setup.  First, I will run
some checks on your system to make sure the PPPoE client is installed
properly...

Oh, dear, I don't see the file '/etc/ppp/pppoe.conf' anywhere.  Please
re-install the PPPoE client.


repos dont have package rp-pppoe , so do i download rp-pppoe from the rp site or is it available in some repo.

You will have to create it and add your info. Run
Code: Select all
sudo pppoeconf
in a terminal.

Which Mint?
In Elyssa ppp is installed by default, including pppoeconf so just create the file as 67GTA suggests
The command starts a "guide"
