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; has details

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


under 12.1 i wasn't using networkmanager at all, but connected via kppp, after detecting & switching the device using sakis3g. that involed editing scripts under /etc/ppp and took me a while to get right.

since 12.2 (12.3 now) i'm using networkmanager (KDE4 plasma applet), and it works surprisingly well. i never got any errors from pppd, no unrecognized options or such.

perhaps it would help to clear out all previous configurations?
