Description compwiz 2000-08-25 02:29:26 UTC
Something has to be done about the way ppp interfaces are started on bootup
- It used to be that the init script would start pppd in the background,
and be along its merry way.. But now, when a ppp connection is set to start
on bootup, the initscript waits for a certain amount of time (60 seconds i
guess) after initiating the ppp connection, and then decides it's taking
too long and then puts it in the background after a 'FAILED' message. Also,
when initiating a connection on bootup, the normal wvdial messages such as
the modem init strings are not printed to syslog, for some strange reason. 

The syslog messages should act as if the ppp connection were started
manually, and init shouldn't have to wait for so long to put the interface
