Description Avi Kivity 2005-07-22 11:42:05 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.4; Linux) KHTML/3.4.1 (like Gecko)

Description of problem:
ifup-ppp spans pppd and remains in memory, even though it has nothing left to 
do (if $DEMAND is false). this wastes memory. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
initscripts-8.11.1-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
ifup ppp0 
   

Actual Results:  $ pstree 
... 
ppp-watch----ifup-ppp-----pppd 

Expected Results:  $ pstree  
...  
ppp-watch----pppd

Comment 1 Avi Kivity 2005-07-22 11:45:14 UTC
Created attachment 117050 [details]
reduce persistent process count in ifup-ppp

attached patch execs pppd instead of spawning it if $DEMAND != yes

Comment 2 Miloslav Trmač 2006-04-10 22:53:56 UTC
Applied in rawhide initscripts-8.32-1.  Thanks!
