Description of problem:
After upgrading the stock 7.3 kernel to 2.4.18-4 ppp no longer works. It worked
just fine before with the 2.4.18-3 kernel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install redhat linux 7.2 (complete install, i.e. everything)
2. configure ppp, connect to internet successfully, download all errata using
up2date, specifically the new kernel (2.4.18-4)
3.reboot with new kernel, connect to internet, and observe that you cannot ping
any sites on the internet
Actual Results: cannot ping any sites on the internet
Expected Results: should have been able to connect with ppp and ping anywhere
on the net as I could do with the previous kernel
If I reboot to old kernel 2.4.18-3 everyhting is fine.
step one above should "install redhat linux 7.3 ... not 7.2
There were no changes involving ppp, at least not directly involving ppp,
in the change from 2.4.18-3 to 2.4.18-4. Can you revert to -3 long enough
to confirm that the bug goes away when you revert?
no feedback in >18 months, closing.
