pppoe.so is a softlink to rp-pppoe.so and is a left over of a previous
experimentation (I kept the unpatched-by-me .so around and would switch
to test, using the link to point to the correct .so).

eth0 loaded OK. ifconfig -a shows eth0 eth1 and lo. Will try if-{up,down}

OK. It works now. But eth0 was to be configured _and_UP_. What does
that imply, eth0 to be up? Is it a security hole, or what? What I don't
get, is that the last time I connected, I am pretty sure eth0 was DOWN,
and that it worked. Anyway, eth0 : made the trick.

No /etc/ppp/plugins. That one was made by RP-pppoe, which I promptly
removed a long time ago (time when in-kernel pppoe and ppp-2.4.2 were
working OK, even after I removed RP-pppoe).

Thanks very much for your attention,
