I got it working but I'm not sure what the problem is.
I have the ppp0 interface configured auto in my interfaces file.
I power up my computer and then I do
I see not one, but two pppd call dsl-provider processes and no pppoe process
(a line like "/usr/sbin/pppoe -I eth0 -T 80 -m 1412" like I used to see on
the other laptop)
root 2409 0.0 0.1 3340 1228 ? Ss 21:29 0:00 /usr/sbin/pppd
root 2785 0.0 0.1 3340 1224 ? Ss 21:29 0:00 pppd call
Solution is to kill both of them, and then do pon dsl-provider
But why would it start two pppd processes and no pppoe and how do I fix it?
