I have ARM Linux running on an Acorn Risc PC. I am trying to set up a PPP
link to another machine via a null modem cable. When I start pppd, the
following error line appears in daemon.log (I've turned on various debug
options in ppp/options):

A Google search for this error revealed some postings suggesting setting up
an alias to ppp_generic for this module as a fix, but that alias is already

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I should do to fix this?
I've upgraded many of the packages to those from Woody, but looking at the

kernel image to put in its place or whether I should be booting into Linux
some other way these days, so advice on that would be welcome too.
