i just compiled ppp 2.4.3 on suse 9.2 which worked nice.
for yet, i didnt get ready to test ppp winbind auth, as i want a new smb
server for this.
But i have another question to this stuff
did you include the
in 2.4.3 ? or do you know anyone has ported it? ( its very usefull to me )
Finally, a backport of ppp-ntlm_auth.patch
to version 2.4.2 would be great so i could produce
a new suse 2.4.2 rpm including this brand new winbind stuff. ( rpmbuild
fails at create for many suse patches on 2.4.3 )
I dont think suse will upgrade to ppp 2.4.3 until a new distro version
is comming up
Happy New Year
and Best Regards Robert
