Description Justin Cormack 2005-12-03 14:41:01 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
I have an adsl PCI card which I have set up. Creating a PPPoA connection with pppd call adsl works fine, but if I set up ifcfg-ppp0 and do ifup ppp0 the connection comes up but ppp-watch never sees this and hangs, so ifup never terminates.

(Hardware is Sangoma S518; driver is GPL but not using the version in the kernel tree using more recent vendor version).


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

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure ifcfg-ppp0
2. Configure ppp peers file
3. ifup ppp0
  

Actual Results:  ifup hangs.

Expected Results:  Should have returned once ip configuration had happened.


Additional info:

Are you able to determine which end condition for ppp-watch isn't getting met?
(This is going to be something which will be hard to do hands-on debugging here.)

Trying to trace it. I think netreport may not be working. But I am slightly
stuck following the logic. What process actually sends the signals to the PIDs
in /var/run/netreport?

ifup-post.

Ok, was a config problem; I will post some configs that work on the web. Can
close now.
