Description Henri Schlereth 2001-06-11 04:28:40 UTC
Description of Problem:
Since the split of the ppp module into several more modules the upgrade
(from 7.0 -> 7.1) fails to put the new modules in modules.conf

How Reproducible:
Upgrade a 7.0 box with ppp to 7.1 and have onboot = yes in ifcfg-ppp0

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reboot after upgrade

Actual Results:
It either hangs or fails.

Expected Results:
Should boot up and dial as part of bring up the network

Additional Information:
the temporary fix is to add the modules by hand, add persist to
PPPOPTIONS(if needed) and
depmod -a ; ifup ppp0

Note: this may properly belong to ppp but I thought it should go here as
part of the
install/upgrade process.

Comment 1 Brent Fox 2001-06-14 17:34:36 UTC
Nalin, I don't think that the installer handles this sort of conversion during
upgrades.  Does this sound like more of a ppp problem to you?

Comment 2 Preston Brown 2001-08-24 13:50:07 UTC
bill, trond, this should be handled via the network init scripts.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-08-24 15:55:42 UTC
No, modutils should handle the new ppp aliases fine.

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2001-08-24 15:56:20 UTC
No, modutils should handle the new ppp aliases fine.
