PPP support missing?

Moderators: chensy, FATechsupport

Is it possible that PPP support is missing in the precompiled Ubuntu Core Xenial images? I'm trying to make my NanoPi Neo connect to the internet through a cellular modem, but I get this error:

Code: Select all

root@test:~# pon fona
Couldn't open the /dev/ppp device: No such device or address
modprobe: FATAL: Module ppp_generic not found in directory /lib/modules/4.11.2
/usr/sbin/pppd: Please load the ppp_generic kernel module.


PPP seems to be installed, but not working?

Code: Select all

root@test:/etc# apt-cache policy ppp
ppp:
  Installed: 2.4.7-1+2ubuntu1
  Candidate: 2.4.7-1+2ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 2.4.7-1+2ubuntu1 500
        500 http://ports.ubuntu.com xenial/main armhf Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status


I am completely new to Linux, so excuse me if I'm asking obvious stuff here.
Hi,
The NOE runs ubuntu16.04 so if you want to use ppp support you can just search Ubuntu16.04 how to configure PPP will be ok, and you can look at this link: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NetworkManager.

thank you!
i met the same issue today, when running "sudo pon xxx", it shows

Code: Select all

modprobe: FATAL: Module ppp_generic not found in directory /lib/modules/4.11.2
/usr/sbin/pppd: Please load the ppp_generic kernel module.


@jjm, @Epyon any solution you found?
Hi there is no PPP_* module/drivers loaded in the kernel, so can FA helps us compile ppp_generic module, so that we can load to the kernel? thanks.
