PPPoE ADSL in Zenwalk Linux

Filed under

Zenwalk Linux is a fine Slackware derivative, known as Minislack through mid-2005.

However, as with other Slackware derivatives, obtaining a properly-working PPPoE ADSL connection is not 100% trivial, despite the use of Roaring Penguin's rp-pppoe package.

In theory, with a working Ethernet adapter, you should be configuring the PPPoE connection with pppoe-setup, then start it with pppoe-start.

You can say it works this way (it gets connected and if you have "DNSTYPE=SERVER" in /etc/ppp/pppoe.conf), and it will even get the nameservers in /etc/resolv.conf... but it will fail to set proper routes, no matter the same config file says "DEFAULTROUTE=yes".

So you will be having a non-working connection!

Full Story.
