    Strange pppd message...


    I want to use GPRS modem to connect to the Internet. It is build on Nokia 12i and communicates mith my PC through USB-Serial Converter (with ftdi_sio driver). After I load converter module I can communicate with modem by /dev/ttyUSB0 device. I've even noticed (when I accidentally left running kppp terminal connected to modem), that chatscripts are working well and my modem dials number and waits for login/pass and so on.
    Now let's get to the point. Although the modem has dialled number and connected pppd displays the following error messages:
    ---
    Serial connection established.
    Couldn't set tty to PPP discipline: Invalid argument

    Disconnecting...

    Disconnected.

    Serial link disconnected.

    Does anybody know what is wrong?
    I'd be very grateful for help.

    My config:
    - AMD Athlon XP 1800+,
    - VIA KT-266A based ASRock Motherboard,
    - USB 2.0 (ehci_hcd fully configured, works in 100%),
    - 128 MB RAM,
    - unmodified Slackware 10.0
