2.0.1 PPP broke

Wed, 3 Jul 1996 13:35:02 -0500 (CDT)

I've been using a home brew PPP dialer script for months now. I used it
with kernels 1.3.25 through 2.0.1. I upgraded to kernel 2.0.1 today and
PPP seems broken. PPPd will start, it will give me the
'connect:ppp0<-->/dev/modem' string, but it failes to get my dynamically
assigned IP address. It just quietly exits. It worked perfectly with
2.0.0, so I know it's a 2.0.1 problem. I have PPP as a module, and have
the latest kerneld, pppd, etc. The module is getting loaded so that's not
the problem either.

Anyone else have this problem? For now I'll have to stick with 2.0.0.
