Description Gustav Schaffter 2000-04-03 17:38:51 EDT
In RH6.0 and RH6.1 there was no /etc/ppp/ip-up.local provided. In the
/etc/ppp/ip-up script, there is a test to see if the file
/etc/ppp/ip-up.local exists and if it's executable. If so the file is

In the ip-up file there is a comment stating (and I quote):
"This file should not be modified -- make local changes to
/etc/ppp/ip-up.local instead"

The upgrade from RH6.1 to RH6.2 overwrote my ip-up.local with a script
file containing code to save resolv.conf if the interface is ippp

It also created an unexpected file /etc/ppp/ip-down.local

Comment 2 Gustav Schaffter 2000-04-04 03:53:59 EDT

I had the following (very reasonable) comment from Gordon Messmer

Since you've already submitted a bug report, perhaps you can modify it
with the suggestion that the isdn-config package create the files:
rather than

then, modifiy the ip-up and ip-down scripts to test for the presence of
those two files.  they already test for ip-up.local and ip-up.heart (and
of course, ip-down.local and ip-down.heart).  Adding another check would
be simple.

Or... they could get jiggy and create /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/ and run all of
the scripts in there!!  :)

Makes sense, IMO.
