I'm configuring a fresh install of 1.1. I can only start pppd as root.
I found that /etc/ppp had permisions of 700. After changing that it
still can only be run as root. Comparing "strace" output shows that
it may be failing doing an ioctl on /dev/ttyp0. Changing the permissions
of this tty to 666 didn't help.
