Check /var/log/messages for obvious problems.

Last time I had a problem like that I just uninstalled the rpms for ppp and reinstalled them.

This may not be the best way, but I don't see how it can fail.

You may want to try just one of the packages at a time to see if it fixes it. I just did them all, I wanted to update them anyway.

run this for names of the packages

rpm -qa | grep ppp

this is what I get


then download the rpms you need by searching google for them or rpmfind

uninstall like this

rpm -e rp-pppoe kdenetwork-ppp kpppload ppp

you may have to force the uninstall if there are dependencies.

cd /folderwith rpms/

rpm -i *
