Description UMEZAWA Takeshi 2002-07-04 12:06:58 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

How Reproducible:


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.

Actual Results:

ppp0 is shut down AFTER ethX at shutdown time.

Expected Results:

ppp0 is shut down BEFORE ethX at shutdown time.

Additional Information:
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
