Thanks!
I want to first apologize for not replying to the post as the expert you are looking for. I am using debian 7-1-16 and getting
Code:
Couldn't open the /dev/ppp device: No such device or address
/usr/sbin/pppd: Please load the ppp_generic kernel module.

I believe we have the same problem.

I've solved the issue by building the kernel from sources after enabling the ppp_generic module.

Follow this link to compile a new kernel: https://github.com/umiddelb/armhf/wiki/H...ARM-device

Remember to enable PPP modules; point 6 here: https://archlinuxarm.org/forum/viewtopic...=29&t=29722

If you need more detailed information let me know.
