Modem Manager Conflicts with KPPP?
I've really been having a hard time connecting using KPPP since I installed Slackware 14.0 last week (yes, I know 14.1 was released just around the same time!) Anyway, after much fruitless googling, I finally came across something that suggested that Network Manager might be the problem. Of course Network Manager relies on Modem Manager for detection of modems. So I uninstalled Modem Manager, and lo and behold, problem solved! I hope I'm not being premature here, but thus far, it seems to me that there's some kind of conflict between KPPP and Modem Manager. Has anyone else experienced this?
P.S. Just uninstalled Modem Manager from my Mageia partition. I'm able to connect just fine so Modem Manager wasn't necessary after all. I also notice that Modem Manager is a bit of a CPU hog. IMHO, Modem Manager still needs a lot of work!
