Gpptp fixed in Easy

May 22, 2020 — BarryK

Puppy Forum member 'jafadmin' maintains gpptp:

He has reported that it doesn't work in EasyPup (and EasyOS), and has fixed it:

There are two PETs, 'gpptp' which contains the binaries, and 'gpptp-noarch' which contains everything needed to make it work. I have modified the latter in accordance with jafadmin's fixes.

In Easy, /sbin/ip is the full utility, not a link to busybox. The full ip has more features, needed by some applications. So the script in gpptp-noarch creates a symlink /bin/ip to /sbin/ip.

Gpptp requires /dev/ppp, which is missing. This is now created in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit.
