I've noticed that the how-to is out of date. I was wondering if there
is a more up-to-date how to document somewhere. In the meantime, here
is my version of the old howto modified by what I think needs to be
done. I'd like to have some idea of what I am doing before I get
1. Grab yourself a clean copy of the PPP daemon v2.3.8 (ppp-2.3.8.tar.gz).
I've got ppp 2.3.10
2. Grab yourself the MSCHAPv2/MPPE diff file from:
** I grabbed the ppp-2.3.10 diffs plus the stateless patch.
3. Grab yourself the SSLeay-0.6.6b file from:
** As far as I can tell there is no 0.6.6b so I got the latest - 0.9b
4. You should now have 3 files:
** How about 4 files :
Copy these files to your preferred location (I prefer /usr/local/src/)
** Me too.
5. Assuming your files are in /usr/local/src/ and your current working
directory is also /usr/local/src/ do the following:
[tar zxvf ppp-2.3.8.tar.gz]
[tar zxvf SSLeay-0.6.6b.tar.gz]
[cp SSLeay-0.6.6b/crypto/rc4/rc4.h ppp-2.3.8/linux/]
[cp SSLeay-0.6.6b/crypto/rc4/rc4_enc.c ppp-2.3.8/linux/]
[cp SSLeay-0.6.6b/crypto/rc4/rc4.h /usr/src/linux/drivers/net/]
[cp SSLeay-0.6.6b/crypto/rc4/rc4_enc.c /usr/src/linux/drivers/net/]
[cp ppp-2.3.8-patch1 ppp-2.3.8/pppd]
[patch -p0 < ppp-2.3.8-patch1]
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Huh ??
There is no equivalent 2.3.10 file.
[patch -p0 < ppp-2.3.8-mppe-others-norc4_TH7.diff]
Even with this step there are problems. Apparently you need
the "key" file also.
Also , does anyone know why applying the mppe_stateless patch fails ?
It looks like it should work just fine.... (and no it's not the
dreaded CR/NL problem. ignoring whitespace doesn't work either. Is
it just me or is patch kind of sensitive program ? )
Step 6 failed miserably for me, I wasn't able to build the kernel.
Any pointers will be most appreciated.
