[Buildroot] [PATCH] Re: Deprecate rp-pppoe package

I notice that the missing radrealms.so is mentioned in your referenced
post.  I'd suggest at least getting the fix to pppd.mk included for the
2010.08 even though the rest is more likely to be held off.

I posted the fix (by itself) at:


Setting up and running a pppoe server daemon requires a number of
specifically tailored config files.  I didn't include any of mine since
they are specific to my test setup on my desk (they have specific IP
addresses, realm names, user IDs, shared secrets, etc).

I still like my previously posted solution to pppd:
It gives the option to install the radius plugins with the necessary
dictionary files and converts it to gentargets.
I'll give your rp-ppppoe update a spin later.
It's unlikely these changes will go in for 2010.08 since we're already
at release candidate stage, which makes it a nice chance to get things
right to the last bit for next release.
