Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 67942
PPPoE should be disconnected before underlain ethX goes down
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:28:33 EDT
Description of Problem:
If a persistent PPPoE session (through adsl-setup) is configured (and
the connection uses ppp0), ppp0 will be shut down before ethX and PPPoE
session is closed unsuccessfully.
This problem makes rebooting slow. My ISP restricts PPPoE session one for
each user. So, another PPPoE session (at rebooting time) is made waiting
for previous PPPoE session timed out (about one minute).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RedHat 7.0-7.3 i386 and (probably) all previous versions and all platforms
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run `adsl-setup' and make ifcfg-ppp0. this PPPoE should be persistent.
2. run `ifup ppp0' to open PPPoE session.
3. shutdown the system.
ppp0 is shut down AFTER ethX at shutdown time.
ppp0 is shut down BEFORE ethX at shutdown time.
To avoid this problem, I wrote K89ppp0 script, which shuts down all PPPoE
connection before K90network. But it's only a 'hack', and not a essential
