"No such device"? Does the network device you're trying to use exist?
Comment by Maggie (MagiCarbon) - Thursday, 18 August 2016, 02:55 GMT
yup, it exist. im using it now. if rollback to Linux 4.6.x, the pptp working fine.
Comment by Doug Newgard (Scimmia) - Thursday, 18 August 2016, 03:13 GMT
You're using it under the old kernel. Does the device node exist under the new kernel?
Comment by Maggie (MagiCarbon) - Thursday, 18 August 2016, 03:54 GMT
how to check if under the new kernel?

is there anything else you want to know? let me know.
Comment by Doug Newgard (Scimmia) - Thursday, 18 August 2016, 04:10 GMT
Boot the new kernel, then run `ip link`, see if your adapter is listed.
Comment by Maggie (MagiCarbon) - Thursday, 18 August 2016, 04:19 GMT
output of `uname -r`:
4.7.0-1-ARCH

output of `ip link`:

`3: enp0s20u4` is the using device, a USB wifi device.

PS, i have 2 PCs. almost the same hardware, the same Arch Desktop Environment and the same problem with PPTP connection.
