Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 543002
NM-Plugin version does not match pppd version.
Last modified: 2010-02-26 22:31:41 EST
Description of problem:
NetworkManager can not connect pptp-vpns anymore.
pppd says: pppd: Plugin /usr/lib/pppd/2.4.4/nm-pptp-pppd-plugin.so is for pppd version 2.4.4, this is 2.4.5
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -q ppp pptp NetworkManager-pptp
Always on current rawhide.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update to rawhide with installed NM and NM-pptp
2. Setup some pptp-vpn
3. Try to connect and look at /var/log/messages
... pppd: Plugin /usr/lib/pppd/2.4.4/nm-pptp-pppd-plugin.so is for pppd version 2.4.4, this is 2.4.5
VPN is connected.
I suppose this is just on rawhide the case.
nm-pptp needs to pick the right directory and ensure that it conflicts with pppd when pppd's version changes
The same issue occurs with F-12 + ppp-2.4.5 from updates-testing.
So...for the user, what is the workaround on F12? Is there some way to force nm-pptp to use the 2.4.5 directory instead of the 2.4.4.? Or is the solution to downgrade NetworkManager-pptp?
Okay, found the updated rpm:
Downloaded it, installed it and everything works!
Thanks, guys, for your consistent work.
NetworkManager-pptp-0.7.997-3.git20100120.fc12 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 12.
The update in comment #5 has actually been in f12-updates-testing since 2010-01-22, but the ppp-2.4.5 push to stable caught me by surprise so the NM & NM-pptp updates will only go out in the next push.

NetworkManager-pptp-0.7.997-3.git20100120.fc12.x86_64 doesn't fix the issue for me :(
Is that the x86_64 issue now?
Your assistance is much appreciated.
Some time ago this issue was fixed in rawhide. SO using
# yum install --enablerepo=rawhide
might solve this problem.

Dan & Jiri,
are you aware that Bodhi allows you to create a grouped update to ensure that ppp and NM get pushed at the same time? Please make use of this feature in the future.
Its only work on i386. i dunno how this bs happened, but i trust that in future it doesnt happend again.
Thank you in advice, Fabian.
I've updated the NetworkManager-pptp with
# yum --enablerepo=rawhide update NetworkManager-pptp
And got the same NetworkManager-pptp-0.7.997-3.git20100120.fc13.x86_64
The issue is still here :(
do u try it? http://fr2.rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/fedora/devel/x86_64/NetworkManager-pptp-0.7.997-3.git20100120.fc13.x86_64.html
sorry... poorly considered previous post\=
Bug #548520 comment #34 and comment #10 above suggests there should have been "more than one build [added] to an update request". There really ought to be a process in place to ensures this happens.
A yum downgrade of ppp fixed the problem for me, but in the meantime I was without network - and so the ability to cure the problem - for over a day at an extremely inconvenient moment when I was relying on using my 3G connection.
NetworkManager-pptp-0.7.997-3.git20100120.fc12 has been pushed to the Fedora 12 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
