Description rri0189 1999-05-28 14:16:40 UTC
linuxconf claims to set up ppp/slip sessions (and is recommended for doing so in the install manual), but the slip feature doesn't work, because the rest of the system (e.g., usernet) wants a dip script for slip, and linuxconf only creates a chat script. netcfg does the same, but attempts (with rather poor success, but that's another problem) to translate the chat script that it creates into a dip script.

This issue has been forwarded to a developer for further action.
Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-07-13 15:54:59 UTC
Component changed to initscripts because I think that ifup-slip should create the dip script on the fly if the chat script exists and the dip script does not.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 1999-08-24 16:04:59 UTC
I disagree - doing on the fly conversion in the initscripts is silly; linunconf should integrate with the rest of the system.
Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 1999-10-04 20:08:59 UTC
*** Bug 3371 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** When setting up a slip interface with linuxconf under RH6.0, linuxconf creates /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/chat-$DEVICE. Unfortunately, RedHat's network scripts (ifup-sl) expect to find a dip script (/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/dip-$DEVICE). Workaround: use control-panel (netcfg) to set up network interfaces.
Comment 5 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-09-13 23:10:18 UTC
Currently, rp3 (and rp3-config) is the recommended and working way of doing this (added in Red Hat Linux 6.1)
