Hi all,

call me dump but I'm struggeling in setup ADSL for my new LFS. Long time ago, 
we're using the pppd and rp-pppoe packages to do so but none of them remains 
in then book. Maybe i'm blind but i cannot find anything about setting up 
I found a mailing list entry of Alexander somewhere in 2007 that rp-pppoe 
isn't required anylonger and he pointed to 
http://wiki.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/wiki/PPP but this wiki also refers to 
pppd in the PPPoE section but the ppp-2.4.5 package isn't in the book too.

So, can you give me a hint how is the BLFS way to setup ADSL-connections? Arch 
is still using rp-pppoe (or at least pppd) - whats wrong with it that we not 
have it in BLFS?
