what am I doing wrong? If I type "tcpdump -xXni sip0 -s 0" tcpdump shows
me the complete packet data of all ethernet packets. If I use pppoe0
instead of sip0 tcpdump ignores "-xX" and shows PPPoE + TCP/IP headers
only. If I'm not totally brain damaged and IIRC I could use "-xX" with
ppp0. Why is this impossible with pppoe0?

# tcpdump -Version
tcpdump version 3.7.1
libpcap version 0.4

I have this problem with kernel 1.6A and 1.5ZA.
