Description Göran Uddeborg 2001-10-16 09:28:02 UTC
Description of Problem: When I upgraded from initscripts 5.49 to 6.40 an old problem reappeared. For PPP interfaces using demand dialing, "ifup" hangs. In the 5.49 version of ifup-ppp the DEMAND option modified the behaviour of the script in some critical places. This code apparently was lost somewhere on the way to 6.40. As far as I can understand it is still needed. At least for me, "ifup" hangs when I try to do "ifup ppp0". And consequently, the boot process don't run smoothly. I modified ifup-ppp with some code from the 5.49, and my system appears to be fine again. I enclose the patch. (Beware, though, this is not very well tested.) Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 6.40-1 How Reproducible: Always. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set DEMAND=yes in one ifcfg-pppX 2. Do "ifup pppX" for the same X. Actual Results: The ifup don't finish. Expected Results: I expect ifup to finish. Apparently the boot scripts do too.

Created attachment 34182 [details] My modifications to make PPP startup work again.
Comment 2 Göran Uddeborg 2003-07-11 19:27:02 UTC
This works again with initscripts 7.24-2.92. (From Cambridge alpha 2. Could very well work with 7.14-1 from RH9 too, even if I can't easily verify right now.)
