after upgrading from 5.3 to 5.4 yesterday

FreeBSD 5.4-STABLE FreeBSD 5.4-STABLE #0: Mon May  9

I receive

kernel: DEVFS Overflow table with 32768 entries allocated

and ppp stucks if issued as a normal user

[tom at lap tom]$ ppp
Working in interactive mode
Warning: No available tunnel devices found (No such file or directory)


# To build ppp with normal permissions
PPP_NOSUID=     true

in /etc/make.conf.
Additionally will ndis no longer work correctly

 6    1 0xc2f64000 11000    ndis.ko

 ifconfig ndis0 up
ifconfig: interface ndis0 does not exist

Do I have to compile the wrapper again?

Thanks for any support Tom
