Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
When I invoke kppp from KDE menu, it asks for root password and then
happens after entering password. The kppp runs (I verified by logging as
and executing 'ps -e | grep kppp') but nothing comes on screen. Then I kill
kppp (as root) and invoke it again from KDE menu. This time the kppp window
comes up. (If I start kppp as root, then this problem does not occur)
I have seen this problem happening everyday CONSISTENTLY over last 2
When kppp gets connected to internet(for the first time after kppp screen
the ppp link does not work most of the times.(ping does not work for
To overcome this problem, I disconnect kppp and connect again. This time it
works. This behaviour is also consistent(90% of the time).
Both of them are fixed in the current version.
Either upgrade, or edit /etc/security/console.apps/kppp to have SESSION=true
