Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6649
redhat ppp dialog box
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
when i start the redhat ppp configurator, i get a dialog box
that says something about an error with SaveYourself.
When I click 'cancel' (as opposed to remove), it comes back
every 10 seconds until i quit the configurator
also ppp does not seem to be negotiating dns properly - i
get a connection to my ISP fine, and can see IP addresses,
but i cannot resolve dns names
I cannot reproduce (1). Can you tell me how you are trying
to start the ppp configuration tool?
(2) will be fixed in an update to initscripts once a few more
possible bugs get ironed out. In the meantime, you can fix it
by running the command
nameserver' >> /etc/resolv.conf
and then logging in to your ISP again. (The buggy code will
replace existing nameserver lines but not add new ones, so
you are just adding dummy entries to get modified when you
(1) works for me and I didn't hear back on any more details about how you
are running it. Reopen if you can give me those details.
(2) is fixed in the current initscripts release.
Only happens when rp3 pops up rp3-config automatically because there are no
network interfaces on the machine. The save yourself message (part of
session management, incidentally) non-response is from rp3 itself, not
from rp3-config, because rp3 is waiting for rp3-config to finish. Not
sure how to fix this at the moment. I'll think about it.
I'm no longer able to reproduce the SmcSaveYourself errors, and rp3 appears to
be waiting asynchronously for rp3-config to quit now.
The reporter of this bug has not responded for over three months. I can only
assume that she has solved her problem.
