I retry with same ISO. PPPoE connection is OK but I have always
debconf error. Here are logs:

Interesting part is probably:

Aug 31 00:24:00 pppd[11082]: pppd 2.4.4 started by (unknown), uid 0
Aug 31 00:24:00 apt-install: Queueing package ppp for later installation
Aug 31 00:24:00 main-menu[2142]: (process:10955):       0
Aug 31 00:24:00 main-menu[2142]: WARNING **: Configuring 'ppp-udeb' failed with error code 1

This is the same error Abel faces

Hmm, if this is because of ppp-udeb, then it could be because of the
apt-install command (shooting in the dark, but its worth a try).

Abel, Gregory, could you try to modify (nano is available), before
running the PPPoE menu item, the ppp-udeb.postinst script (at the end)
so it reads:


# FIXME - how can this be improved?
[ -e /etc/resolv.conf ] || ln -s /etc/ppp/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf

log-output apt-install ppp || true



instead of

# FIXME - how can this be improved?
[ -e /etc/resolv.conf ] || ln -s /etc/ppp/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf

log-output apt-install ppp


exit 0

Then tell me if things improve? With logs, if not.
