From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 95) Description of problem: ppp-watch is not passed "boot" arg. by ifup-ppp because the script passes its $2 (sometimes "boot") to ppp-watch, but a "shift" has moved "boot" into $1 Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): initscripts-7.55.1-1 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. configure a ppp connection 2. 3. Actual Results: does not start "ppp-watch ppp0 boot" but as "ppp- watch ppp0" so start is delayed while connectiojn is established Expected Results: that ppp-watch is passed "boot" Additional info:

Chris, do you happen to have a fix for this problem ?
Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 16:09:39 UTC
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Comment 3 Chris Leighton 2005-04-26 22:16:30 UTC
The problem as described is still an issue in FC3 therefore please leave as outstanding against FC3 and possibly FC4.

Created attachment 125434 [details] Pass $2 == "boot" correctly Looks obvious enough, but I have no way to test it right now.

I ran into this bug earlier today -- a machine ~50 miles away hung on boot while trying to bring up ppp0 because its PPP peer was powered off. BOOTTIMEOUT was ignored since ppp-watch didn't think the machine was in the process of booting. I created a patch before discovering this bug report, and my patch is identical to Miloslav Trmac's patch (attachment 125434 [details]). Although this bug is filed under the "Fedora Core" product, please note that the bug is also present in RHEL.

Fixed in rawhide initscripts-8.32-1. Thanks for your report.
