Dear Joerg,

I had that problem once. I took it to be a wobbly bit of configuration.
The PPP Kernel depends on another Kernel module (I forget which).

When you invoke the ppp-up script, PPP cannot be inserted into the Kernel,
because the other Module is missing. But due to "No Errorchecking(TM)" the
script waits (....) for something to happen anyway.

The hack is either (1) insmod the missing module, which you will find
inside mu. I suppose that 'insmod ppp' will issue an error message "Cannot
... missing module whrgl" or something, telling you which one it is.
'insmod whrgl.o' will resolve this problem. After that ppp-up will work.
Or (2) find out what's wrong with your configuration, i.e. why the missing
module isn't inserted at startup.

Um. Mark
