rp-pppoe missing

Post by leoliou » 2019/10/25 03:49:24

Hi team,

The package rp-pppoe used to be there in CentOS 7 but I couldn't find it on CentOS 8. I still need this to dial-up my DSL. Where can I find it or any instead?

Thanks and regards,
Leo Liu

You might want to consult the RHEL 8.0 release notes and see if that package is mentioned as deprecated. Otherwise

Code: Select all

# dnf  --enablerepo=epel,epel-testing,epel-playground list \*ppp\*Available Packages
NetworkManager-ppp.x86_64                                          1:1.14.0-14.el8                                           BaseOS    
perl-Devel-PPPort.x86_64                                           3.36-5.el8                                                AppStream 
ppp.i686                                                           2.4.7-25.el8                                              PowerTools
ppp.x86_64                                                         2.4.7-25.el8                                              BaseOS

ppp-devel.x86_64                                                   2.4.7-25.el8                                              PowerTools

I encountered same problem.
And the release note doesn't contain any information about "pppoe", check the link below:
https://access.redhat.com/documentation ... -en-US.pdf

The dnf list command provided above also cannot provide anything useful.

Seemed the package was removed accidentally.
Any other pppoe client I can use?
thanks, any suggestion is welcome.

rp-pppoe has been integrated into ppp package:

Code: Select all

boholt:~> rpm -ql ppp | grep rp-pppoe
Just use it as before. I've basically configured my WAN the same way as I did in CentOS 7, using nmcli.
