I am quite sure about reporting this bug, as it cost me half a day today, and I
only figured out that my 13.1/x64 setup was hopeless, only on-site location
when I wanted to deploy the machine that was supposed to do a simple
dsl0-dialup via ethernet connected to an xdsl modem with a simple ethernet
port.

Clean install via 13.1/x64 RC2 iso from an usb-key, then zypper dup to latest
packages (100+ packages got updated)
then moved the machine to the target location and wanted to setup the dsl
(pppoe) there, only like trying for an hour or two, all the ethernet devices
that this machine had available only to find out that somehow yast dsl
configuruation gui was somehow not adding any entry to the dsl-devices page,
only the providers-page got filled (custom provider entry there).

the sysconfig/network/providers/providerfile
got created just fine

but there was never a new sysconf/network/ifcfg-dsl0
or similar file ever nor was the yast dsl-devices window listing any entry
there even after endlessly going through the same steps that like worked for
many opensuse and suse distributions in the past.

:(
this is a huge showstopper for me and just taught me once again to actually not
go for the latest opensuse distributions this tightly :(

things that come to my mind: maybe its even some modules trouble that it does
not talk pppoe any more, this used to be a module for the kernel in the past,
right? i am not sure any more, i havent looked for the technical details a long
time ago (roaringpenguin and such stuff comes to my mind, maybe thats even more
historic though...)


btw, I just compared the still-current opensuse 12.3 (x86 though) that is also
doing dsl-dialup via dsl0 etc... with the command:

# lsmod | grep -i ppp
pppoe 17512 2
pppox 13159 1 pppoe
ppp_generic 32184 6 pppoe,pppox
slhc 13258 1 ppp_generic


and this 13.1/x64 machine has no ppp hits for modules at all i think. will
check the machine later.
