Upgrade fails to configure ppp modules in /etc/modules.conf
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:21:10 EDT
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
Upgrade a 7.0 box with ppp to 7.1 and have onboot = yes in ifcfg-ppp0
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reboot after upgrade
It either hangs or fails.
Should boot up and dial as part of bring up the network
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
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?
bill, trond, this should be handled via the network init scripts.
No, modutils should handle the new ppp aliases fine.
