RE: [Xen-users] PPPoE in DomU exits with error

Here's what I 'can' tell you.

My previous setup used Debian Etch as the dom0, pciback to pass a nic to a
domU, and Smoothwall 3.0 firewall distro as the domU.  I used the Xen
provided Redhat kernel package for the domU, since Smoothwall is a fork from
old Redhat, and copied the modules from it into the domU.

It just worked.  Then, I just recently dist-upgrade'd to Lenny, and
installing the Xen 3.1 hypervisor, staying with the existing 3.04 kernels
(2.6.18-5-xen-686), and it still works.

I suspect your problems lie strictly with pppoe and not Xen, you might want
to try hitting up the Roaring Pengiun forums (do they have a list?) and see
what they can tell you.  Of course, I'm no guru, I just pretend to know what
I'm doing, so take my advice/info with a grain of salt.

So, I did reinstall everything to Debian Etch. I am running xen from 
debian packages. But I just cannot make the pppoe work.

Please help!!!

I did hide the pci device on the boot. I checked that the driver (e1000) 
is not loaded in Dom0.
I included pci statement in DomU config file. I checked that the devide 
was recognised and driver was loaded in DomU.

I have it all on HP DL145 G2 server. There is AMD dual core processor, 
2GB ram, 2x Broadcom network card and I added Intel PCI card in the 
raiser board (PCI-X).

pppoeconf will discover pppoe on eth2 (intel 1G card) but when it tries 
to establish the connection. it fails with:

    Nov 18 09:44:40 alsfw01 pppd[1723]: Plugin rp-pppoe.so loaded.
    Nov 18 09:44:40 alsfw01 pppd[1723]: Linux kernel does not support
    PPPoE -- are you running 2.4.x?

Could anyone help me to troubleshoot it.
