My PPP connection takes about 50 seconds to finish coming up so
ppp-watch was always printing "failed, retrying in background" at boot
even though the connection was going to succeed. I changed
alarm(30) to alarm(60) on line 490 of ppp-watch.c and all is well.
Created attachment 4144 [details]
patch to make boot timeout a configurable option
Thanks, patch will be in 5.60-1!
