KPPP Dies Exit Status 16 with Nortel/Verizon USB760 Slackware64 13.1
I'm having problems with KPPP constantly dying with "exit status 16: cannot determine Ethernet destination for proxy ARP" (the kind of thing you get with a modem when KPPP is set faster than the modem can talk).
The modem, in this case, is a Nortel/Verizon USB760. Typical signal level is two, sometime three bars (and, yeah, sometimes one with two flickering). I can get connected, I may remain connected for as little as a minute, as long as a couple of hours, who knows. So far, writing this, I've been disconnected twice.
The system is configured for loopback, I'm in all the groups I need to be in for both dial-up and wi-fi and the thing will stay connected and work fine for hours in Win7 (dammit).
Seems like it might be a daemon thing, a HAL thing, some sort of thing and I don't really know where to start digging (or what do do when I get there).
Any ideas are appreciated.
