Description Petr Krištof 2001-02-27 17:48:57 UTC
System: fresh installed RH-7.0.91 (Wolverine) + vanilla kernel 2.4.2
Config files are taken from working RH-6.2 server.

pppd frozes during trying to open device ttyS0.

Im not sure what is wrong - pppd or mgetty?

Comment 1 Glen Foster 2001-02-27 22:06:47 UTC
Do you see the same behavior if you use the stock Wolverine kernel? We haven't
seen reports of wolverine-only code not working...

Comment 2 Petr Krištof 2001-03-09 16:23:37 UTC

Core of problem was corrupted HW component.
After replacing its working fine with both original
and recompiled kernels.

Thanks for help


Comment 3 Thomas Woerner 2004-08-13 09:19:10 UTC
Please verify this with a newer version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Fedora
Core and reopen it against the new version if it still occurs.

Closing as "not a bug" for now.
