Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6519
pppd/gnome goes haywire
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
When I am logged in as root or anything else I will attempt
to use the pppd command to connect to the internet, my modem
will hesitate and then keep dailing and disconnecting even
when the system is powered down . then after awhile of it
being off it may work again , but after using my connection
5 or 6 times the gnome will not load and my system will lock
and not reboot. therefore forcing me to reinstall the 6.0
red hat linux. It has done this ever since i have had this
os. it does this even if i use the linuxconf . Please help
I think that you are seeing several different problems here.
pppd should not be causing your system to lock up, and even
if something causes your system to lock up, you should not
have to reinstall.
As for redialing, do you also have an ethernet connection
with a default route set?
This bug has gone untouched for almost three months. I can only assume that
the reporter has since solved the problem.
