#1951 closed enhancement (fixed)

rp-pppoe absent in soas-2-blueberry

Reported by: uhu Owned by: mchua pbrobinson sdz
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: Sugar on a Stick (SoaS) Version: SoaS 2 (Blueberry)
Severity: Major Keywords: rp-pppoe absent
Cc: Distribution/OS: Fedora
Bug Status: New


The internet/network configuration programm rc-pppoe (Roaring Penguin PPPOE) is absent in the actual version of soas-2-blueberry.
This means that normal user have only ip assigned by DHCP or has to configure them by command-line.
It is not possible to configure other network services like wireless (didn´t try) or from internet provider, for example adsl without a workaround.
The workaround is to download rp-pppoe from Fedora 12 repositories, store it into a removable media and pass it over to hdd in case of an hdd instalation. Hanging an installed soas hdd on a network with internet for download is possible. The worst case is in the live cd session where the end user has to install rp-pppoe in every session from pendrive for having internet access.
In case of an installation of soas-2-blueberry in the pendrive it may be easy to stick it to an other o.s. on an other pc with running internet for downloading this file (didn´t try).
rp-pppoe does not claim absent dependencies on soas-2-blueberry and works well with adsl (Anteldata in Uruguay in my case).
