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