Subject: [gentoo-user] was passwd now dialup and/or loop

1 Hello everybody,
3 Well, seems I must emerge system to get to passwd. I
4 maybe could find the distfiles I need on the
5 universal-install iso but wouldn't you know it? theres
6 no loop module on the min-install to do the job.
8 OK, so I oughta be able to dialout to the webby world
9 and emerge system that way. Wrong! When I run
10 pppconfig, I get "no ui". So I go look for "pppconfig
11 "no ui" " on my back up unit(where I am now). Too
12 weird! So I copy over the ppp config files
13 _word_for_word from the backup to the new unit. Now
14 the thing dials out to ? The modem lights flicker as
15 they should but nothing can be pinged. BTW, ifconfig
16 reveals the loopback device as well as ppp0.
18 Any dialup hackers out there?
