Description Nick Brown 2001-12-10 03:58:40 UTC
When ppp is set to demand and start on boot, system hangs on boot. ppp
watcher needs to be run as daemon or in background. work around is to hack
the /etc/rc.d/init.d/network script to check if service is ppp and to run
it in background with:

 if [ $i = "ppp0" ]
 then
    action $"Bringing up interface $i: " ./ifup $i boot &
 else
    action $"Bringing up interface $i: " ./ifup $i boot
 fi

a minor pain for me, a major pain when I have to fix my dads box

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.
