Description Nate Golnik 1999-10-12 14:00:00 EDT
In 6.0 this was not a problem.  In 6.1 using the Xircom
Combo cards, the modem will not function while the Ethernet
part is working.  As soon as you ifdown eth0 the modem will
start dialing.
Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-05 08:14:59 EST
In your /var/log/messages file, are you getting warnings about
your default route?  This is likely pppd refusing to replace the
default route if one already exists.
Comment 2 Nate Golnik 1999-11-08 10:48:59 EST
It can't activate the port.  Kernel updates seem to fix the problem.
Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-19 10:11:59 EST
This is a change in pppd behaviour.  The next release of initscripts will
work around this change.
Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 1999-12-06 14:28:59 EST
Whether this particular problem is a pcmcia problem or the problem
I thought it was in initscripts, it is fixed now.
