Description Andrea Santilli 2005-06-18 18:01:49 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; it-IT; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
This is what I get when I initialize my ethernet card (eth0):
Determinazione informazioni IP per eth0...ppp0: error fetching interface information: Device not found
ppp0: error fetching interface information: Device not found
ppp0: error fetching interface information: Device not found
External network device ppp0 is not ready. Aborting..
ppp0: error fetching interface information: Device not found
ppp0: error fetching interface information: Device not found
ppp0: error fetching interface information: Device not found
External network device ppp0 is not ready. Aborting..
 eseguito.

This happens even on boot.
I find this weird because ppp0 can't be connected until eth0 is (pppoe). So why does it look for ppp0 if it still hasn't initialized eth0?

The weirdest thing is that this doesn't create any problem in initialization of both eth0 and ppp0. Both still work fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3.0.2-12

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. /sbin/ifup eth0
2. I get the errors from ppp0
3. Though eth0 gets initialized and even ppp0 is ok when I start it.
  

Actual Results:  I get unusual ppp0 error while initializing eth0

Expected Results:  No error messages

Additional info:

This didn't use to happen in FC3.
