Subject: [gentoo-dev] PPP over ATM support (and Speedtouch userspace driver)
Date: Wed, 26 Jun 2002 00:31:13
1 Hello,
3 I'd like to know if it will be possible to include the PPP over ATM
4 support in the mini-installation files, in the future. It would be a great
5 help for people that need PPP to connect to internet to begin thei
6 nstallation from scratch. The only modem (i think) that uses pppoa on linuxi
7 s the USB Alcatel Speedtouch modem. There are a lot of people that use it,
8 and there's also an available driver at
9 Just for your knowledge, that driver is under the GPL license, but it need a
10 binary file (the firmware) in order to work; it must be downloaded from the
11 Alcatel web site for legal reasons and so it can't be provided into a
12 complete package: the user has to add it somewhere. You can find more details
13 about that in the documents provided with the driver itself.
16 Thank you for your attention,
17 Luca.
