Description of problem:
There is a problem with kernel-2.6.6-1.427 (also with
kernel-2.6.6-1.383). Normally ppp0 (xDSL) is activated at boot time on
my box. But with afore mentioned kernels there is no way to bring up
the network interface ppp0.
adsl-start won't work too.

I still have to use a home-brewed kernel.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot/reboot your system with kernel-2.6.6-1.427

Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2004-06-19 12:23:43 UTC
can you try booting with acpi=off ?

Comment 4 Pascal Volk 2004-06-20 08:45:44 UTC
I've tried to boot with 'acpi=off', but this doesn't solve the problem.

Comment 5 Jérôme Audu 2004-08-03 07:47:49 UTC
Update to the latest rp-ppp package from devel (or C3-test1) 
directory (rp-pppoe-3.5-15.i386.rpm) then it will work again.

Comment 6 Dave Jones 2004-11-19 03:54:26 UTC
this got fixed in updates ?

Comment 7 Dave Jones 2004-11-27 20:19:15 UTC
mass update for old bugs:

Is this still a problem with the 2.6.9 based update kernel ?

Comment 8 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 05:31:47 UTC
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat.  The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.

If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.

Thank you.
