The default kernel found in Kamikaze 8.09 downloaded from OpenWRT web site is panicing when kernel accel-pptp is used. I cannot provide the output of the Oops message ’cause i have no serial connection to the router (and I don’t want to add one since then I will need serial-to-usb connector as well).
So I went further and used the trunk (at revision 14823), built the image, flashed the router, found that it is far from being dead and tried…
root@gate:~# pppd plugin /tmp/pptp.so.0.0.0 pptp_server 10.0.0.3 nodetach \ debug user ******@internet.beeline.ua password ***
No output, but no crash. Ok, logging in for another session…

With no error messages in dmesg.
I will test this setup for an evening or two and the third part will be about how to package it the right way.
Here’s the third part.
