Would it be possible to include the dial up package yawmppp (and its dependency SED) with the next beta/rc version of Arch 0.7?
It would considerably simplify getting online for those who can only access the internet via a modem and are not familiar with the trial and error of getting ppp option files to work.
People have reported segfaults and ppp dropouts on connection with wvdial and problems with kppp, both of which remain unresolved for some users according to postings on these forums.
I have always found yawmpp to be the most reliable means of getting online.
