NetworkManager-pptp                         x86_64                         1:1.1.0-3.20150428git695d4f2.el7
NetworkManager                             x86_64                             1:1.8.0-11.el7_4
NetworkManager-pptp-gnome                       x86_64                       1:1.1.0-3.20150428git695d4f2.el7                         epel

It's critical for me. Please fix it.
Comment 3 Stamatis 2018-01-27 10:35:36 EST
I can confirm the same. Seems it's because its linked with the old libnm-util/libnm-glib and not with libnm. 

As a workaround I downloaded the latest source from gnome ( NetworkManager-pptp-1.2.4.tar.xz ) , compiled it manually and it's working fine.
Comment 4 Trevor Hemsley 2018-08-15 09:05:27 EDT
NetworkManager-pptp hasn't been updated in EPEL7 since 2015 and no longer functions with the current NetworkManager. I would suggest that it should be orphaned and removed if it's not going to get updated. It's currently useless as-is. As a VPN, pptp is pretty useless anyway.
Comment 5 Vinicius Trivinho 2018-10-03 09:40:24 EDT
It is critical for me too and I downloaded the latest source from gnome but can't get it working.
