The pppd daemon complains about the lack of PPP-support in the kernel 
(version 2.4.1). I have compiled it both as a module (or several modules, 
actually) and into the kernel, and it still doesn't work. Problem applies 
to all versions of ppp, but is not present in the 2.2 kernel series.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compile PPP-support into kernel 2.4.1
2. Start the pppd daemon which will refuse to start

Actual Results:  Pppd gives you a message saying that ppp support is 
missing in the kernel, when really it's not.

Expected Results:  Pppd should have set up my ppp connection to my ISP, 
and stayed there until I killed it and thereby breaking phone-connection.
It does so perfectly in kernel 2.2.5-15

You need a new ppp package, most likely. The one in 5.2 certainly isn't new
enough; try the one in rawhide.
