Have a look at the file /etc/modutils/aliases (The files located in
/etc/modutils/ are used to create /etc/modules.conf by the program
`update-modules'. See `man update-modules' for more information).
There is a line
alias tty-ldisc-3 ppp_async
You'll need the kernel module ppp_async, so just activate the option
`PPP support for async serial ports' in the kernel configuration.
Perhaps you should activate the ppp-compression-modules, too. IIRC
ppp support was just one module in 2.2-kernels, now it appears to have
been divided into several smaller modules.
If there is some strange name and you don't know what it means you can
find /etc -type f | xargs grep strange_name
This will often give you the vital hint.
hope this helps,
