So if I go into the 7.1 directories on the ftp site and pull the
ppp.rpm, will I hang myself? I don't see the 2.4x of pppd as a choice under

Hi Cory,

I run SuSE 7.0 and I think I am right in saying that you cannot continue to
use ppp-2.3.11-143 with a 2.4 kernel - certainly not with a vanilla kernel
anyway - I do not know about SuSE kernel. Although the change was supposed
to be effective from kernel 2.4.0 it was, in fact, still possible to use
ppp-2.3.11-143, with that version. However the position definitely changed
with kernel 2.4.2.

If you look at the Changes document that comes with the kernel you will see
the explanation and the url to get the current ppp

I am no expert, but before I was able to get it working I also had to make
some changes to modules.conf (explained in the ppp docs as I recall) and to
my wvdial setup because of password problems.

Wiser folk on this list probably have better answers, but this may point you
in the right direction until the cavalry arrives.
