Description megan 1999-11-02 16:50:02 UTC
(1) when i start the redhat ppp configurator, i get a dialog box that says something about an error with SaveYourself. When I click 'cancel' (as opposed to remove), it comes back every 10 seconds until i quit the configurator (2) also ppp does not seem to be negotiating dns properly - i get a connection to my ISP fine, and can see IP addresses, but i cannot resolve dns names -megan

I cannot reproduce (1). Can you tell me how you are trying to start the ppp configuration tool? (2) will be fixed in an update to initscripts once a few more possible bugs get ironed out. In the meantime, you can fix it by running the command echo 'nameserver nameserver' >> /etc/resolv.conf and then logging in to your ISP again. (The buggy code will replace existing nameserver lines but not add new ones, so you are just adding dummy entries to get modified when you log in.)
Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-19 20:56:59 UTC
(1) works for me and I didn't hear back on any more details about how you are running it. Reopen if you can give me those details. (2) is fixed in the current initscripts release.
Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-19 21:18:59 UTC
Only happens when rp3 pops up rp3-config automatically because there are no network interfaces on the machine. The save yourself message (part of session management, incidentally) non-response is from rp3 itself, not from rp3-config, because rp3 is waiting for rp3-config to finish. Not sure how to fix this at the moment. I'll think about it.
Comment 4 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-01-31 14:10:59 UTC
I'm no longer able to reproduce the SmcSaveYourself errors, and rp3 appears to be waiting asynchronously for rp3-config to quit now.

The reporter of this bug has not responded for over three months. I can only assume that she has solved her problem.
