I'm getting problems with a dying pppd - the ppp daemon on a SuSE 7.2
In attempting to connect to my ISP via wvdial (or kppp) I manage to connect
but once an attempt is made to start the pppd I get the following message:
The PPP Daemon has died: Pty program error (exit code = 9)
And within /var/log/messages I get the following:
Couldn't set tty to PPP discipline: Invalid Argument
Now I have googled, looked at How-Tos and any books, documents I have but
I'm none the wiser as to what is causing this to happen. I've contacted
SuSE support but to no avail.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled the pppd and wvdial packages and
regenerated my connection settings - still the same error. I guess this
now points to something in my kernel configuration but this strikes me as
unlikely as no new kernel has been generated in quite a while.
Anybody got any ideas.
