Hi,

Error:

Quote
# lilo
Fatal: Label "SME-Server-2425s" is too long
]#


Also will not boot on the new kernel. Message that kernel is loading and then system resets.

Hi

In your lilo.conf try typing something smaller than the label I type
Like : SMEserver2425
That should work

Hi MasterSleepy

Can you confirm that there is no PPTP support in this kernel
build. I tried looking for ppp_mppe.o module but it's not
there. Modprobe also gives an error trying to locate the
module ppp-compress-18

Hi,

Yes it appears that I don't include that module in the kernel.
I'll look for that also.

Thanks for the return.
Bye

MasterSleepy, how can I get the URL to the downloads so I can download them direct to my SME servers from the command line with for example wget ?

It is a very good initiative MasterSleepy. And seems that it works for other people. So I guess i am willing to give it a try. My question is: can you make a multi processor kernel? I have a abit BP6 mobo with 2 celerons running as server. Ofcause I would like both my processors to put in their workload ;-)

Kernel Upgrade Test

Test box:

Hardware:
PII-350 64MB ram, 7.5GB hard drive. (Old reliable junker)  

Software:
SME 6.01-01 with the following updates:
initscripts-6.67-1es26.i386.rpm
openssh-3.8p1-1.norlug.i386.rpm
openssh-clients-3.8p1-1.norlug.i386.rpm
openssh-server-3.8p1-1.norlug.i386.rpm
openssl-0.9.6b-36.7.legacy.i386.rpm
openssl-perl-0.9.6b-36.7.legacy.i386.rpm
rsync-2.6.2-1.noarch.rpm


Had no trouble with the upgrade, but now I am not able to create a PPTP session to another SME 6 box from behind the upgraded SME server that I could vpn into before I upgraded the kernel.  I get the dreaded error 619.  Is there anything different that needs to be done to create the PPTP session?  I am using XP Pro.  I currently use PPTP vpn's to my other vpn servers with no trouble.  I have a mixture of AMD and Intel boxes.  I am currently behind a SME 6 box now and have no trouble with VPNs to other remote SME 6 boxes.

Thanks for your work. I am just posting this as feedback.

Keep up the good work!

Marco

Hi,

I have tested the pptp connection, and it's working on my test platform.
Did you follow Step 7 of the howto?

Regards.
