I have recently rebuilt, using EGCS, my kernel. When I reboot, pppd
refuses to maintain a connection. Syslog says "modem hangup". pppd's
debugging output does not work for diddly, for some reason, so the
only way I could find out anything is thru ktrace/kdump. Did so, and
after about the third read on connection, ktrace shows me, within pppd,
read eventually returning "Resource unavailable".
So I recompiled pppd. No go.
So I recompiled libc, libutil, libcrypt and libpcap. No go.
As soon as I revert to the old kernel, everything is hunky dory, even
with the new libraries in place.
I have changed NOTHING in my config file since 1.3.
What gives? Is there any other information needed here?
