Description Enrique Perez-Terron 2002-07-22 19:55:32 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:0.9.4) Gecko/20011126

Description of problem:
If the user has several setups (ppp0, ppp1, ...) and he wants to edit
ppp1, the script reports an error when comparing the user-specified
device ppp1 agains each existing but different device, e.g. ppp0.
Then the script creates a new setup if the specified one is not found.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):3.4-3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create two or more files /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp?
  where '?' is e.g. 0, 1, 3, 5. Make sure the files contain DEVICE=ppp?
  as in the file name. Also include TYPE=xDSL and NAME=something lines.
2.Run adsl-setup. The values of DEVICE and NAME are listed for each file.
Specify the last device.
3.Repeat step two, but specify a non-existing device.


Actual Results:  The program says the device is not found, and asks you to enter 
a correct device. It repeats this message for each device that is
different until it finds the right one.Then the program lets you
edit the specified device

If you specified a non-existing device instead, the program creates one.

Expected Results:  If the device exists, it should not complain.
If it does not exist it should remain in the loop until
you either say 'n' for new (as instructed) or specify 
an exisitng device.

Additional info:

I have a patch against version rp-pppoe-3.4-3:
