Description David W. Legg 2003-07-26 11:35:46 EDT
Description of problem:

Just installed the following packages onto my RH 9 system.

rpm -Fhv rhpl-0.93.4-1.i386.rpm
rpm -Fhv redhat-config-network-tui-1.2.13-1.noarch.rpm
rpm -Fhv redhat-config-network-1.2.13-1.noarch.rpm

Now redhat-config-network refuses to deactivate my ppp0 connnection.
A little window appears briefly then disappears. Don't think was any text in
the litle window.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
See above.

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Connect to Internet using redhat-config-network.
2.Wait a few minutes.
3.Attempt to disconnect using the Deactivate button.
4.Hey presto.
Actual results:
No disconnection.

Expected results:
The ppp0 row should go from Active to Inactive.

Additional info:
It worked with the RH 9 versions, but not with the updated versions.

please try 1.2.14 from
Comment 2 David W. Legg 2003-08-20 16:08:58 EDT
V 1.2.14 seems to work ok, but you need to get others to try it with other
combinations of devices and nicknames. DWL
