Slowly connecting to the internet using PPPoE

i run into a very annoying thing, usually take less than a second to connect to the internet using pppoe-start but today after a new installation of slackware 13.1 take a couple of secs to connect.


# pppoe-start
...... Connected!


# pppoe-start
. Connected!

i'm using kernel-generic-smp-, i even rebuilt the rp-pppoe package but it's the same thing. same behaviour was also in the previous release using kernel due the broken forcedeth in that version of kernel, but on ArchLinux using the same version of kernel works normally.

any ideas?

Check your settings to see if the update/install changed anything... other than that it looks like a new lib/dev package could be the culprit.
