Description aleasur 1999-10-29 22:04:54 UTC
When I am logged in as root or anything else I will attempt to use the pppd command to connect to the internet, my modem will hesitate and then keep dailing and disconnecting even when the system is powered down . then after awhile of it being off it may work again , but after using my connection 5 or 6 times the gnome will not load and my system will lock and not reboot. therefore forcing me to reinstall the 6.0 red hat linux. It has done this ever since i have had this os. it does this even if i use the linuxconf . Please help thank you

I think that you are seeing several different problems here. pppd should not be causing your system to lock up, and even if something causes your system to lock up, you should not have to reinstall. As for redialing, do you also have an ethernet connection with a default route set?

This bug has gone untouched for almost three months. I can only assume that the reporter has since solved the problem.
