kppp not working after upgrade
I recently upgraded to Debian Squeeze (6) from Debian Lenny (5). kppp was working in Lenny, but does not work now. It connects to the modem, and dials, but it then gives an error 1 (pppd error that apparently means "An immediately fatal error of some kind occurred, such as an essential system call failing, or running out of virtual memory.") Often the program freezes, and I have to use xkill to get rid of it. I can connect to the internet using pon/poff (via a setup with pppconfig), but kppp does not work. I'm a member of both dialout and dip groups. The file /etc/ppp/peers/kppp-options is set to noauth (it's uncommented, and thus working).
Any suggestions on how I can fix kppp?
