Seems I'm the only one that cares for me ;o)

Strangely, further experiments showed that ppp works with the 2.4.22
kernel image provided by Adrian Bunk, although it uses devpts. I guess
the same would be true for the stock Debian 2.4-kernel.

So I think I get this narrowed down to an issue with devpts in kernel
2.6 or the 2.6 image from backports.org.

I still have the prob that I have no mouse (both gpm and in X using
/dev/input/mice in XF86Config-4 as I've always done) with the
self-compiled kernel that has always worked, although the mouse again
works with Adrian Bunk's image.

I have absolutely no idea why this can be.

Any takers for one of these issues?

regards, M
