Description Pekka Pietikäinen 2004-08-27 13:53:42 EDT
Description of problem: This could actually be initscripts, ppp, udev, mkinitrd or dev, but filing it under initscripts since that's what gets stuck. mkinitrd-4.1.6-1 udev-030-7 package dev is not installed (yum upgrade failed since it thought /dev was devfs and nuked it!) initscripts-7.71-1 ppp-2.4.2-4 [root@the RPMS]# more /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-Baana ... ONBOOT=yes DEVICE=ppp0 PROVIDER=Baana LINUX_PLUGIN=rp-pppoe.so like this when networking is started, the system just gets stuck there, the alt-sysrq keys don't report anything useful etc. ONBOOT=no and ifuping it in rc.local works but it has to try it a few times: Aug 26 19:30:18 the kernel: CSLIP: code copyright 1989 Regents of the University of California Aug 26 19:30:18 the kernel: PPP generic driver version 2.4.2 Aug 26 19:30:18 the kernel: NET: Registered protocol family 24 Aug 26 19:30:18 the kernel: HDLC line discipline: version $Revision: 4.8 $, maxframe=4096 Aug 26 19:30:18 the kernel: N_HDLC line discipline registered. Aug 26 19:30:18 the pppd: Plugin rp-pppoe.so loaded. Aug 26 19:30:18 the pppd: Linux kernel does not support PPPoE -- are you running 2.4.x? Aug 26 19:30:18 the pppd: Exit. Aug 26 19:30:18 the adsl-connect: ADSL connection lost; attempting re-connection. Aug 26 19:30:19 the udev: creating device node '/dev/ppp' Aug 26 19:30:23 the pppd: Plugin rp-pppoe.so loaded. Aug 26 19:30:23 the pppd: RP-PPPoE plugin version 3.3 compiled against pppd 2.4.2 Aug 26 19:30:23 the pppd: pppd 2.4.2 started by root, uid 0 Aug 26 19:30:23 the pppd: PPP session is 47388 Problem could be a missing /dev/ppp. syslog isn't up at that point so debugging is a bit nasty. Could change the ordering I suppose...
Comment 1 Pekka Pietikäinen 2004-08-27 14:05:20 EDT
Blah... recreating the mkinitrd or something todays rawhide actually fixed this problem. The dev-getting-nuked is a bug I suppose, but things work just fine without it so... :-)

Bug is back, moving syslog before networking shows the system goes into a (this from the old log but the messages are the same :-) ) Aug 26 19:30:18 the pppd: Plugin rp-pppoe.so loaded. Aug 26 19:30:18 the pppd: Linux kernel does not support PPPoE -- are you running 2.4.x? Aug 26 19:30:18 the pppd: Exit. Aug 26 19:30:18 the adsl-connect: ADSL connection lost; attempting re-connection. loop, after all initscripts have run udev seems to notice it should be creating /dev/ppp and what happens is like in the log above, I'm still not sure what conditions are required for that to happen though. initscripts-7.77-1 udev-030-20 ppp-2.4.2-4 mkinitrd-4.1.9-1 dev-3.11-1 Not sure which component should be responsible for creating it, /sbin/kmodule & rc.sysinit from initscripts or udev_start/startudev from udev?
