Trying to set up kppp with a serial modem.
When I load the ppp_generic module a /dev/ppp node pops up, but for the life of me, I cannot get a /dev/ppp0 node.
alias /dev/ppp* ppp_generic
in my modprobe.conf and modprobe.devfs
Without /dev/ppp0 pppd will not start.
The answer, I am stupid; did not have ppp_async enabled in the kernel.
