Description R P Herrold 2002-04-04 10:32:37 EST
Will attach snapshot in a moment ...

Basically, ppp is unable to insert modeule 'ppp0' which kppp is able to -- such
that the pppd man page example on establishing a session is notfunctional.

Alsi, it looks as though there is a sleep in an interrupt processing routine,
possibly in the pccard logic, which is causing the kernel to fault.

Does this still happen with the kernel from skipjack-beta2?
Comment 3 R P Herrold 2002-04-09 16:05:27 EDT
machine in question is at home -- will test tonight -- I also bought a handful
of used pccard modems across the weekend, to extend the scope of my testing ...

ticket is no longer relevant -- I am closing, and will re-submit if I see it
