Description BDKoepke 2008-02-26 04:48:49 UTC
networkmanager-pptp doesn't work with and amd64 system. This does work with ubuntu (they patched the build). The fix for this has been available for quite some time (I'm just not sure how to access the updated code without downloading networkmanager-0.7.0). This needs to be fixed because it removes pptp support from networkmanager

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.64 bit system
3.attempt to use pptp

Actual Results:  

Expected Results:  
connect to the vpn
