[opensuse-factory] Anyone able to use a UMTS data stick?
Is anyone successfully using a UMTS data stick with 12.2 (or
Factory or 12.1 with kernel 3.4 or later for that matter)?

I always get

pppd[7116]: unrecognized option 'wwan0'

since that is what NetworkManager now passes to pppd instead of
ttyUSBX and failed to find a way to change that on the user side.


Attached is the, ahem, creative workaround I devised to
track this down and get online this weekend;
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=776520 has details

Is this just me, or will this hit everyone/most/many with a UMTS
data stick?
