Description Gregory Hampton 2003-12-01 17:26:38 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4b)

Description of problem:
When I click on the network device control ppp connection, it dials
the modem and then stops responding.  The connection doesn't get
completed and I have to kill the process and start over.  It takes
three or four tries sometimes before I can establish a working ppp
When I try to click on the configure button, It won't open and it
generates a crash report which I will include.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Try to open a ppp connection.

Actual Results:  Modem dials but the activating network device message
never goes away and the connection is not established.  Crash message
appears when I try to close the activating network device window.

Expected Results:  Modem dials, activating network device message
appears while modems establish connection, then activting network
device window disappears, network device control window indicates
device is active, and communication over the device is possible.

Additional info:

When I try to click on configure, it wont open and the crash report is
generated.  I have tried from the window and in a terminal.

This is the md5 checksum data I got.  

They don't match.  What do I do?  I will inquire over at rhn if I can get
replacements for these files.  If this solves the problem, I will report back.
Comment 4 Gregory Hampton 2003-12-06 19:22:45 EST
I downloaded the redhat-config-network rpm from rhn.  The problem
seems to have gone away.  the md5 checksum data now matches yours.
