[pptp-server] ppp_mppe.o: kernel-module version mismatch

It appears your current kernel is not the same as the one you compiled your 
modules for?  Not 100% sure, but I think setting
in your /usr/src/linux/.config file should do the trick...it's also the same 
as "Loadable module support"->"Set version information on all symbols for 
modules" when using make xconfig.  You'll have to recompile the kernel after 
you make this change...
