Description Need Real Name 2003-11-07 02:33:09 UTC
Description of problem:
I am trying to create an xDSL Connection by using
redhat-config-network, I give the program some parameter just like
"Login name", "Password" and etc, also give the "Provider name" as
"ADSL", after I press OK, the system named the connection as "ppp0"
and the connection can be activated correctly. But after the system
reboot, the connection cannot be up either during the boot process or
after the boot process by running "ifup ppp0", it says configuration
for ppp0 not found. The redhat-config-network created scripts in
/etc/sysconfig/... as "ifcfg-ADSL", but actually it should be
"ifcfg-ppp0", after rename all three "ifcfg-ADSL" in the directory to
"ifcfg-ppp0", the problem solved. Please fix the bug.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run redhat-config-network
2. Create an xDSL Connection, set the Provider name to "ADSL", and
press OK.
3. Reboot the system.
Actual results:
The new created conneciton cannot be up.

Expected results:
It should be up during the system boot process or after the system
booted, run "ifup ppp0".

Additional info:
Please rename all ifcfg-ADSL to ifcfg-ppp0, the problem would be solved.

cc to Than: Are the initscripts fixed?

Comment 2 Ngo Than 2003-11-12 20:11:48 UTC
you have to upgrade rp-pppoe to 3.5-9. It should fix this problem.

If it's not yet in rawhide, you can download it from

Please let me if it works for you. thanks

Using 3.5-9 with X GUI "Internet Configuration Wizard" does not fix
problem here (the wizard "Nickname" field (not ppp0) is appended to
"ifcfg-" . 

Additional comment:
Is there a check for existance of ifcfg-eth# where eth# is the nic
interface that ppp will bind to?

If an eth# entry exists in /etc/modules.conf (or kernel) but no
corresponding entry exists in /etc/sysconf/network/scripts then ppp
may fail at startup (as the eth# will not have been pre-initialised)?
