[2009.testing] Problems with GPRS multiplexing

Dear all,

I'm having trouble getting GPRS multiplexing to work on the latest
testing release. Any help would be appreciated a lot.

I've followed the guide here:


Installing the multiplexing software as per Florian Hackenberger's instructions:


The /etc/ppp/peers/gprs, /etc/ppp/chat-gprs & /etc/ppp/chap-secrets
were copied from theteaparty.net, but edited with the specific details
for Vodafone UK (contract). I also copied the ppd-start script:


Running it returns:

root at om-gta02:~# ./pppd-start
Error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildSignaled: Process
/usr/libexec/dbus-daemon-launch-helper received signal 4

The phone then becomes unresponsive.

The process mediaserver seems to be consuming massive amounts of
resources from boot.

Input from people running a working multiplexing setup would be
massively appreciated.
