Re: new experimental ISDNUTILS packages available

OK. I just set up the isdnutils from scratch. I had to fiddle with
them a bit:

        ls -lid ipppd isdnutils isdnlog isdnlog-data
  22500 drwxr-xr-x    3 root     root         1.0k Sep  7 18:05 ipppd/
  22523 drwxr-xr-x    3 root     root         1.0k Sep  7 18:05 isdnlog/
  22559 drwxr-xr-x    2 root     root         1.0k Sep  7 18:05 isdnlog-data/
  22449 drwxr-xr-x    3 root     root         1.0k Sep  7 18:05 isdnutils/
        ls -l isdn*/examples/default ipppd/examples/default
total 4.0k

-rw-r--r--    1 root     root         1.7k Sep  6 12:07 ipppd.DEVICE.gz

-rw-r--r--    1 root     root         1.2k Sep  6 12:07 isdnlog.DEVICE

total 5.0k
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root         4.3k Sep  6 12:07 device.DEVICE.gz
You see, isdnconfig tries to copy from
/usr/share/doc/isdnutils/examples/defaults/ipppd.DEVICE to

Now, ipppd.DEVICE is named ipppd.DEVICE.gz (arghl, automatic gzipping
in docs dir?). And it resides in /usr/share/doc/ipppd/...!

So, would you mind making a symbolic link to the doc dir? Removing
.../ipppd.DEVICE from the documentation list should work, also.
