I believe that for historical reasons, conf.modules is used if
modules.conf cannot be found - I do not think this applies to the ppp
module anyway, because it is not aliased in, the module is actually called
Have a look in /lib/modules/`uname -r`/net/
See if you can find ppp.o
If it isn't there, then you don't have a ppp module [this doesn't rule
out the possibility that ppp might have been compiled in to the kernel]
Alternatively, you could check /boot/System.map-`uname -r` [grep for ppp]
I think that should tell you if you have ppp compiled in.
It might be worth doing a 'depmod -av' and checking
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules.dep, too, just to make sure.
I am worthless. I struggle with the simple things. It seems so easy for
everyone else. One armed blind people climb mountains and teenagers get
Ph.D's. I have trouble getting out of bed.
