Compilation and instalation

Make sure you have configured kernel headers in /usr/src/linux, or specify other location via KDIR.

Download accel-ppp source code with git client, tree master . Master tree contain actual patches last release.

git clone accel-ppp-code

Create directory for build source code and go to this directory.

mkdir /opt/accel-ppp-code/build
cd /opt/accel-ppp-code/build/


Please note that the double dot record in the end of the command is essential. You’ll probably get error or misconfigured sources if you miss it.

BUILD_DRIVER, KDIR, CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX, CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE, LOG_PGSQL, SHAPER, RADIUS are optional, but while pptp is not present in mainline kernel you probably need BUILD_DRIVER.
