Description culliton 1999-11-10 07:50:09 UTC
All the latest errata fixes as of 2100EST 9NOV1999 installed

System upgraded from 6.0 to 6.1, all ifcfg-* files have
DEVICE set, but the entries were all created with netcfg and
who knows whats missing that rp3 is expecting.

rp3-config still bombs immediately, not sure how much use
the traceback will be...

Darn, attached new info to wrong item... Every time rp3-config bombs I
get pair of entries in /var/log/messages:

Nov 10 02:51:33 culliton-ppp modprobe: can't locate module sl0
Nov 10 02:51:33 culliton-ppp modprobe: can't locate module sl1

Ugh.  Try
ftp://people.redhat.com/johnsonm/rp3/rp3-1.0.2-1.i386.rpm
and see if it fixes the problem.  I made it more robust when it
comes to reading data files.

It is entirely possible, however, that there's yet more work to
do.

Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-12-09 00:52:59 UTC
I didn't hear about about 1.0.2, but in case it didn't fix it, there are
more fixes in the new test release:
ftp://people.redhat.com/johnsonm/rp3/rp3-1.0.3-1.i386.rpm
If I don't hear back by the time I make an errata release, I'll assume
that one of these releases has fixed the problem.

That's the result of a previous crash, I expect.

Remove any of the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp* files that
were created by rp3-config (those files will contain a line containing
the word WVDIALSECT) and then things should go fine.

Comment 5 culliton 1999-12-16 19:35:59 UTC
OK, after quite a bit more playing around I'm ready to declare this fixed with
version rp3-1.0.3-1.i386.rpm.  Great work!  (Hopefully I've picked the right
resolution, please correct it if not.)

Comment 6 Michael K. Johnson 1999-12-16 20:47:59 UTC
Actually, I'd like to reopen this, and then re-close it when I release
an errata that fixes it.  That way I'll know which bug numbers to mark
as fixed when I make the errata release, and at that time I'll mark it
as RESOLVED ERRATA.

Thanks for letting me know that it works!

Comment 7 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-04-06 20:52:59 UTC
Well, we shipped 6.2, so the fixes are in there, and of course in Raw Hide
(ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/rawhide/i386/RedHat/RPMS/) as well.
