Subject: [gentoo-user] udev / ppp problem

I have a ~x86 box that is dial up only and uses ppp.  Last weekend an 
'emerge -uD world' seemed to complete without issue but now I can't make 
a ppp connection as seen by the error attached below.  I admit to not 
knowing my way around udev yet & what I've read isn't helping with this. 
  I'm guessing I need to recreate something somehow.  Penetrating 
insight...  Does anyone see what it is I'm missing that causes the

       udevd-event[9376]: wait_for_sysfs: waiting for
       '/sys/class/net/ppp0/device/driver' failed

error below?  There's no ppp0 directory under /sys/class/net/ but I 
don't know what creates it.

Thanks very much,
Mike
