Arrrgh, gmail won't let me attach files, just sits there spinning.
So I'll have to make do with pastebin.
Is a chronicle of the commands entered. First having booted and not
changing anything, I do #ifconifg, then I do #route -n, then #pon
<isp> to connect. Then there is the running tail of the messages log,
ifconfig, route -n
Next, rmmod the drivers. I do #poff <isp> to bring down ppp0, tail the
messages, And so on...
NB: the crash of the time daemon doesn't matter. Like everything else
I need to work around the problem; in this case via a script in
/etc/ppp/ip-up.d and /ip-down.d. The problem persists if I don't start
the daemon at all.
At the bottom of the file I've included the /etc/ppp/ip-up script.
The scripts it refers to are here:
The first two don't apply. 50-initd.sh, I don't quite grok.
Hope somebody has the patience to go through this ;)
