Bug#262941: d-i 01aug2004 : possible solution => pppoe, pppoeconf problem
The plog line below gave the hint:

The modules was not loaded at boot.
So I tried to include the following line at /etc/modules:
Now it "seems" to work "most of times".
I realized that it try to connect for about 1 or 2 seconds then give up.
The previous pppoe tried a lot before giving up. Sometimes for minutes.
Well, is it a d-i problem or a pppoeconf problem to include the module loading
at boot time? What is the right file to include it?
