ppp works fine for me in 2.0.1 as well.
1) i have a dynamically assigned IP address.
2) i let request-route do the dialing [*]
3) ppp is a module (bsd compressors are only built as modules).
but my ip-up script resets the hostname to that of the new ip connection
(via SIOCGIADDR), ip-down resets it to old defaults.
[*] this is purely lazyness; i wrote a chat script and made a
request-route a symlink. i keep meaning to look at diald, but havn't
gotten to it.
