make snapshot just completed successfully with today's sources. Doesn't seem
to have the crashiness from a couple days ago. Has anyone built an i386
snapshot with USE_XF86_4 ?

Additionally, I managed to get the in-kernel pppoe working with Verizon's
DSL. I didn't have any luck until I specified the service name ( "verizon",
from [1] ).


pseudo-device pppoe

is not yet in GENERIC but should be.

I now call the following script from rc.local:

ifconfig pppoe0 create
ifconfig rtk0 up
pppoectl -e rtk0 -s verizon pppoe0
pppoectl -v pppoe0 myauthproto=pap myauthname=foo myauthsecret=bar \
ifconfig pppoe0 mtu 1452 up
route add default
