yes i used to have pppd problems with 11.1 never could get it to work with
10.3 and 11.0 no problem at all I'll have to go digging around see what and
who things belong to as i say it is fine as root which is a "" dumb stupid
state of affairs"" and the sort of thing you would think would be checked on
by packagers / devs before it is poked out , After all everyone keeps going
on Dont run as root because of the dangers to both your system and the data
within yet here we go a piece of software that will NOT DO ITS JOB UNLESS RUN
AS ROOT ( and guess what folks like it or not i am shouting ) because this is
a fundemental cockup of the first degree .

Yes I'm confident about what can be the safety_level of a Factory
upgrade, but I was talking about upgrade and risk to get a broken
system, that would be an avoidable choice, if you know the result
opensuse 11.1 - Linux 220.127.116.11-0.1-default x86_64
