    Forget it. There is no ppp0 module and never has been. This is some sort
    of obscure bug in either the kernel or the ppp module that it emits this
    error message.

    You also asking this about a week ago. Are you caught in a time loop?

    Note that this could also be a problem with your modem/modem driver.


    You MUST also enable debugging if we are to help you
    (put debug into /etc/ppp/options and put the line
    daemon.*;local2.* /var/log/ppplog
    into /etc/ppp/options and then do
    killall -1 syslog.conf
    )
