Well, special people have special needs ;)
I have some configuration up and running, but it doesn't seem to be working as expected. I'll do some more investigation and publish back whatever I find onto the dm-crypt/specialities article

Well, I can't provide much further documentation than what already is available on the ppp documentation. I simply copy the binary, needed drivers (for pppoe) and the configuration files (with user/secrets) and call it from the initramfs.

I use this hook on a daily basis for a system where I need to dial pppoe in order for remote unlock it. But as far as the configuration goes, it is the same one you'd use on the booted system. The main difference is on the interface naming, because on the early userspace, systemd hasn't yet changed the name of the interfaces.

Do you really need this hook? I developed this hook mainly for my own purposes adapted from another hook I had developed for ubuntu. I confess that in more than a year this hook has been published, you're the first person to ask me questions about it (in fact, pretty much about all my hooks, heheh)

Cheers

I couldn't find much/any info on how to properly configure a ppp entry in the peers directory. If someone could extend the wiki for that or drop some info here, that would be highly appreciated!
