Description Jamie Slooder 2007-06-05 07:47:30 UTC
Description of problem:

Activating ADSL no longer appears to work in Fedora 7 after using
the same hardware in FC 3 to FC 6.  There are continual timeouts and
the resulting connection is subsequently terminated.

Example errors from /var/log/messages:

pppd[3395]: pppd 2.4.4 started by root, uid 0
pppd[3395]: Using interface ppp0
pppd[3395]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/pts/3
pppd[3395]: LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests
pppd[3395]: LCP: Connection terminated
pppd[3395]: LCP: Modem hangup
pppd[3395]: LCP: Timeout waiting for PADO packets

ADSL setup was done using /usr/sbin/pppoe-setup providing the same
data as in earlier versions of Fedora.

Full details of 2 people having the same problem (with debugging output
in 2nd report) are available at:


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

To reproduce:

run /usr/sbin/adsl-start are configuring ADSL connection
with /usr/sbin/pppoe-setup

Comment 1 Jamie Slooder 2007-06-05 14:42:10 UTC
For some reason, this problem has now been solved by just re-installing PPP
from the Fedora 7 install DVD.  I.e.:

rpm -i --replacepkgs [path to ppp-2.4.4-2 RPM on Fedora 7 installation DVD]

Once that was done, adsl worked (i.e. no connection timeouts).

This solution was quite by accident.  I originally slotted in the FC6 binaries of
pppoe and pppd in the hope they'd work, but accidentally deleted the original
F7 version of pppd requiring me to re-install it from DVD.

So I guess this can be closed
