PPTP VPN kernel module
I am trying to use the pptpsetup and connect to a VPN but it complains with this error:
FATAL: Module ppp_compress_18 not found. /usr/sbin/pptpsetup: couldn't find MPPE support in kernel.
I've checked and there is support for MPPE in the kernel.
root@cadaques ~/ # zgrep MPPE /proc/config.gz CONFIG_PPP_MPPE=y
I'm using Archlinux.
In miguimon's case, the code for the CONFIGPPPMPPE option has been built into the kernel. (Had it been built as a module, you would have seen CONFIGPPPMPPE=m).
Because this capability has been built into the kernel image, it is neither desirable nor possible to load this same code as a module. A script which tries to load it as a module will receive an error. mwalling is suggesting that the script be modified so that it does not exit if an error occurs when trying to load the module.
