Description Chris Leighton 2004-08-04 22:56:32 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 95)

Description of problem:
ppp-watch is not passed "boot" arg. by ifup-ppp because the script 
passes its $2 (sometimes "boot") to ppp-watch, but a "shift" has 
moved "boot" into $1 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure a ppp connection

Actual Results:  does not start "ppp-watch ppp0 boot" but as "ppp-
watch ppp0" so start is delayed while connectiojn is established

Expected Results:  that ppp-watch is passed "boot"

Chris, do you happen to have a fix for this problem ?

Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 16:09:39 UTC
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.

Comment 3 Chris Leighton 2005-04-26 22:16:30 UTC
The problem as described is still an issue in FC3 therefore please leave as 
outstanding against FC3 and possibly FC4.

Created attachment 125434 [details]
Pass $2 == "boot" correctly

Looks obvious enough, but I have no way to test it right now.

I ran into this bug earlier today -- a machine ~50 miles away hung on boot while trying to bring up ppp0 
because its PPP peer was powered off.  BOOTTIMEOUT was ignored since ppp-watch didn't think the 
machine was in the process of booting.

I created a patch before discovering this bug report, and my patch is identical to Miloslav Trmac's patch 
(attachment 125434 [details]).  Although this bug is filed under the "Fedora Core" product, please note that the 
bug is also present in RHEL.
