Description Reuben Farrelly 2001-02-06 12:11:38 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)

Using initscripts-5.60-1

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install initscripts-5.60-1
2. ifup ppp0
3. [does not run]

Actual Results:  I receive an error message about chat-ppp0 not being able 
to be found even though the file exists in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts 
and works under all previous versions of initscripts

Expected Results:  PPP interface should have come up

Reverting to initscripts-5.55 or 5.54 and I can bring up the interface no 
problems at all.

If this is a known change then it ought to be documented...

If you apply the attached patch to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-ppp, does
it start working?
